Did you know that the fish will actually eat a Pseudo? Well last night they were definitely into them, up and down the West Branch, as well as the Main. There were definitely good numbers of Stenos and Isos out yesterday as well, and the fish were keyed in on them at times. Today we’ve got a pretty much an identical, beautiful day on par, with bright sun, and warmer (high 60s) temps. While normally we cringe and the sun, this time of year it can certainly warm up the water a bit and actually get the bugs and fish working, so don’t be surprised to see hatches right in the middle of the day today.

This is what they did yesterday. Sat there. Awesome (Insert sarcasm here). Photo by: Jeff White
