We had a bit more sun than we wanted yesterday so nymphing was definitely a good choice until the sun dropped behind the hills.  There were some mid day sulphurs on the upper West West but everything definitely picked up towards evening.  Today looks better with some clouds already moving into the area.  We may see some rain this afternoon but we’ll have to wait and see.  Most of the storms have been tracking away from over the last few weeks.  We did see more cahills and isonychias over the weekend so those hatches should improve.  Little olives and sulphurs are making up the bulk of the food right now so definitely carry those patterns.  Small olive spinners have worked really well lately.
