We warm back up today with the air temp hitting the high 70’s.  We’ll see sunshine with no real wind. There’s no precipitation in the forecast until Friday.  People have been finding some fish on top early in the day before the sun hits the water.  If you’re already up here it may be worth checking some of the big pools early.  Mid day with bright sun you may need to break out the nymphs or wet flies. There are a lot of caddis out there so you may find some fish eating in the riffles. Look for edges that get early afternoon shade.  Sulphurs, isos, light olives, and cahills have all been out once the sun starts to drop.  Definitely have some sulphur and isonychia spinners if you’re out until dark.
