For the most part we had to deal with sunshine for most of the afternoon. There were periods of wind but it actually did come in gusts so it was easy to wait out before casting again.  2017 will be known as the Summer of the Olive.  There were the normal other bugs around yesterday but once again the little olives seemed to be what the fish liked flowed by a #14 Cahill emerger.  We should have better weather moving in today with variable clouds and a mid day shower.  We shouldn’t see a lot of precipitation so the flows should be fine.  Yesterday’s sunshine caused some of the river temperatures to rise despite the cold night.
