We did get hit with some rain last night but overall the system looks fine this morning.  Hale Eddy is still climbing but so far the water looks perfectly clear out front and is wadeable.  The Stilesville flow didn’t budge and remains at 494 so the water above most of the feeders remains unchanged from yesterday and should fish well too.  It looks like intermittent clouds today and maybe a brief thunderstorm, nothing to be concerned about.  We’ve been seeing a mix of Isonychias, Sulphurs, Stenos, Pseudos, and some tan caddis.  While most of the Green Drake activity is over we are leaving them on the hatch list since some of the guys are still talking fish into eating them.  If the sun pops out nymphing the riffles or blind casting Isonychias seems to be the best bet for landing fish.

 

Bill Redington put this nice one in the net over the weekend!
