Today looks like a classic summer day with sun and air temps approaching the low 80’s.  Despite the weather the entire West Branch and upper East Branch are in great shape.  We are starting off at 46 degrees this morning under the 191 Bridge in Hancock.  Lordville peaked around 68 degrees yesterday afternoon so if you do fish the upper Mainstem double check the temperature with a thermometer.  Pseudos were hatching well yesterday late afternoon along with a mix of sulphurs, isonychias, and cahills.  There have been some small clouds of tricos in the mornings and early afternonns but it hasn’t been a fishable hatch yet.
