The sun is shining this morning which makes it feel a whole lot better than yesterday. Wunderground has the air temperature peaking around 51 degrees today so it’s going to feel like Summer out there after the last few weeks. The rivers are still high and cold with runoff and we still have a bit of snow left in the woods. Most of the water temperatures peaked in the high 30’s or low 40’s yesterday. It’s still a bit cold for the fish to look for the stoneflies but people are catching a couple fish on streamers in the slower water and edges. Nymphing will improve if the water drops. Finding a safe place to wade is still an issue but boating is perfectly safe. The forecast looks dry for the next couple of days with some decent rains coming towards the end of the week.
Tiny Black Stonefly – #18 – Capniidae sp.
