Well it looks like the nice weather is coming after all. We’re looking at temps in the 50s today, which is a welcome respite from the mid-20s temps of the last few days. With the DEP cutting our flow now down  to 235 CFS, the water will certainly heat up faster, and the mayflies that have been patiently waiting for warmer water temps will likely be ready to pop in short order. The warmer weather should persist through the weekend, so we should be in for our first good piece of dry fly fishing!
