WIND! That was the story of the day yesterday. The sulphurs came out in droves starting in the afternoon, but the stiff breezes kept the fish from seeing them, until it laid down in the afternoon. As evening approached, there were some Isos that came to visit, as well as the Hebes, making for a really good night of fishing. As for today, we are looking at some warmer temps, but similar weather insofar as clouds and sun go. The wind should not be a factor today (so they say), which is always good news. If the bugs are working like yesterday, we could be in for a great day of fishing!
