We woke up to some light rain this morning.  Wunderground is predicting the total rainfall of 1/2″ to fall over the course of the day.  Some of the afternoon rain will be in scattered thunderstorms so we’ll have to wait and see if they hit us or hit 10 miles away.  So far everything looks good and it’s feels like a good fishing day.  Winds from the south 5  10 mph.  Yesterday was a mix of clouds and sun.  The sulphurs hatched on the upper West with a mix of olives and isonychias.  We are seeing a few more caddis in the air so keep an eye out for those now too.   It looks like we’ll have clouds and light rain for the next few days setting us up for a good weekend.
