The Upper West Branch had it’s normal sulphur hatches during the afternoon while the lower sections had some sulphur and steno flushes in the evening.  The activity seemed to really slow down as the sun and temperature dropped.  There were still fish to be found rising at dark if you moved around and were patient.  We saw a number of fish eating the sulphur emergers a few inches under the surface and occasionally taking one off the top.  Accuweather is calling for some afternoon clouds with some light rain late which could trigger the Isonychias and Pseudos.  This morning was cool enough to wear a fleece and the WB under the 191 Bridge is 57 degrees.
