The good news is we are seeing some blue quills mixed with the olives and quill gordons. Looking at the flows and water temperatures it seems like we are right on the edge of great dry fly fishing. Yesterday should have happened on top but the wind gusts made it tough. There were some one timers but the fish didn’t get the opportunity to get steady. Streamers are still working well and some nice fish were landed. Today looks incredible with air temperatures close to 60 degrees and winds gusting to 6 0r 7 mph. Water temperatures look great this morning and will climb nicely in the sunshine. Today should fish really well and we expect to find rising fish. We have some clouds and rain in the forecast beginning tomorrow.
