A landing net found on the Upper Mainstem was turned in.  If you’re missing one send us and email

We’re hearing mixed reports from yesterday.  The bright sun and warmer weather seems to have moved the main hatches into the evening.  There are still caddis and a few mayflies offering some daytime opportunities but nymphing and swinging wet flies in the riffles should produce best when the sun in out.  The flows throughout the system are about the same as yesterday morning and the river temps are all starting off only a degree or two lower than than yesterday morning.  The last few days have been described as “mostly cloud” by Wunderground.  We basically had a periods of sun and come cloud cover.  Today they describe as “cloudy” so hopefully the sun doesn’t show.  There are still a lot of different bugs on the water so be prepared.  Some sections are still seeing Coffin Flies at night so definitely carry a few of those just in case they hit the water.
