Happy Easter!  Lots and lots of bugs on the water and in the air yesterday.  Not a lot of fish rising.  We saw mostly stoneflies, Quill Gordons, and a few Blue Quills.   The wind in the afternoon didn’t help.  We have the bugs.  It won’t be long before the fish realize their food is here and the fishing breaks wide open.  A few more degrees of water temp should help tremendously.

There will be some unbelievable fishing sometime in the next 7 days.
