The water levels have dropped back a bit more and everything looks good this morning.  The cooler air temperatures helped the water temperatures a bit but the afternoon sun kept them from dropping too much.  We’re waking up to air temperatures in the 40’s this morning and should only reach 70 this afternoon.  It feels nice to be outside.  We’ll have sunshine again but the winds should be lower.  Nymphing the heavier riffles seemed to be the answer below Hale Eddy.  If you’re looking for dry fly action follow the water temperatures.  We’ll have sun again today so the higher you fish the more likely you are to see daytime activity.  There is still a lot of algae in Deposit so check your fly often.  If you don’t see risers blind casting cahills may work.
