We had decent clouds most of yesterday  with the sun breaking through in the late afternoon.  Olives and isonychias were the main hatches but there were flying ants on the water and the fish were eating them.  Streamers are still producing for some people but seem to be working better on overcast days.  Switch colors and sizes until you start finding fish.  Today should be similar without the afternoon sun.  There is a slight chance of a pm shower but the forecasted amount is negligible.  The flows are still dropping throughout the system and people are finding spots to wade.
