Bright sun yesterday – lots of it. This definitely slowed the hatching down a bit until evening, but the sulphurs and isos were definitely out and about towards evening, and the fish decided it was time to eat just as soon as they started to come out! Today it looks like the spill over the top of the reservoir has stopped, so our flow right now is completely  release water, meaning it is cold and clear, all the way down the West Branch. We have some clouds predicted today, so it looks like we’ll have a pretty similar day today. On another positive note, looking out over Home Pool this morning Jeff and I just saw our first cloud of Tricos for the season. Always a good sight – we’ll keep you posted!
