Clouds! They are what we had all day yesterday, despite what the weathermen predicted. Or is it weatherpersons now? Not sure what is PC….regardless, we had cloudy skies all day, and the bugs were definitely up, and the fish active. Definitely a great day on the water, and the action continued on into dark, even with the fog settling on the river around 8 (which is normally a kiss of death). Today, we are looking at partially sunny skies (i.e. less clouds), and temps in the low 80s. I would expect the fog to be back tonight, but so long as we do not have any rain (which we are not supposed to), it should be easily manageable for sure, and the fish should be active as we approach the evening.
