Yesterday afternoon started off with a nice flying ant drop that had the fish interested in eating on top for a few hours.  Most of the ants on the water were bigger than earlier in the week allowing us to fish #16 – 18 which was a welcome change.  There we some psuedos and summer stenos on the water around the same time but they didn’t hold the attention of the fish like the ants.  The evening was finished with a nice sulphur hatch going into dark.  The Upper West Branch is still seeing some mid-day sulphur hatches and the reports yesterday mentioned less green slime in the water.  Accuweather is calling for warmer air temps today with a few clouds.  The water temp under the 191 Bridge is 56 degrees this morning and peaked around 60 degrees yesterday.
