Apologies on the delay this morning, our server was down early this morning. I love technology.

Rain! It started late last evening, but we definitely had some decent showers throughout the night, which have brought the rivers up just a little bit (about 100 cfs on average), and we have a tiny bit of color down in Home Pool, but definitely the good kind of color (that which makes the fish less picky!). There is scattered rain and t-storms predicted throughout the day today, but I doubt that we’ll get any kind of real blow out from this system. It is doing us a favor by filling the feeders back up, and stabilizing the overall level of the river. As for the fishing yesterday, we had good bugs during day (thank you overcast sky) and the fish were definitely up and on them, but they were even pickier than usual. You have to love it! With the stained water and cloudy skies, that attitude should wear off pretty quickly today!

Always beware flying fish! This is why you hold them over the net for photos (he fell right in the basket!). Photo: Frank Audino
