Yesterday seemed very similar to Saturday except the fish seemed to be even more picky than usual.  We saw decent sulphur hatches in the early afternoon on the Upper West Branch followed by a decent mix of Blue Winged Olives.  Most of the Isonychias we saw hatched later in the evening.  The mid to lower West Branch turned on in the evening with a mix of sulphurs, Summer Stenos, Isonychias, and the Blue Winged Olives.  We had a little rain overnight that hasn’t seemed to budge the flows.  Today looks cooler with a chance of some sporadic Thunderstorms.  The West Branch under the 191 Bridge is 56 degrees this morning.
