Not too shabby out there last night! There was a good mix of bugs once the sun started to drop in the sky, and the fish poked their noses up as well. Hebes, stenos, and Isos made their presence known.We had a very cool over night temperature, so I would suspect everything to start a little bit late this morning, but it bodes well for afternoon hatching. The bright sun will not help the cause, of that I am sure, but as it goes down, we should be looking at some nice evening activity!
