We have some warmer weather coming coming in bringing some thunderstorms our way today and tomorrow.  It doesn’t look like much and some clouds and sporadic rain should help the fishing bringing the olives and Isonychias out and making the fish less wary to rise.  The sulphur hatches continue to come mid day on the Upper West Branch and the evenings have been decent on other sections.  Nymphing and streamer fishing has most productive in the early mornings before the sun hits the water.
