We ended up with some decent showers yesterday but they were brief and barely caused a bump in flows.  We did find fair numbers of olives right after the storms.  Sulphurs and isonychas hatched later on some stretches.  Nymphing and swinging wet flies has been working during the day.  Look for decent riffles with good drop offs offering the fish some protection.  The weather is going to be clear and warmer today.  Pick an afternoon spot that gives you early shade and be patient.  The upcoming week looks great with good cloud cover and light rain.
