It took the bugs a while to get going yesterday but once they started it went almost till dark.   Sulphurs and small, light olives were out in a good numbers with some isonychias and cahills mixed in.  Pseudos and pseudo spinners were in the mix too.  The fog moving in and out kept things interesting but there were fish eating.  Nymphing was effective earlier in the afternoon.  We’re in for more sun today with the air temp hitting the low 80’s.  Wind light and variable.  Look for fish eating in the shade early and fish the cold water.  It sounds like a day with good spinner fall potential.
