Yesterday morning started off slow but fishing definitely picked up in the afternoon.  We saw decent numbers of Summer Stenos and Pseudos mixed with a few Sulphurs, Isonychias, and Golden Drakes.  There didn’t seem to be a “magic” fly.  It seemed to be more about timing and covering the fish well multiple times to get the eat.    There were a number of sporadic fish early but once the bugs started coming down we were able to set up on steady risers.  We have some light rain this morning and cool temperatures.  It looks like most of the weather is coming mid day today.  If it stays light and steady the fishing could be really good.  July 27th and the West Branch under the 191 Bridge is 57 degrees this morning- what an unbelievable Summer so far.
