That was more like it! Great hatches of sulphurs and isos popping off throughout the day yesterday, and some of the happiest fish we’ve seen in the last few days, and very few people on the river to boot. Water temps are great, and it looks like the fish have acclimated to the new levels. Today appears to be similar in nature to yesterday, with the air temps more towards the high 70s, low 80s, and some possible storms rolling through in the afternoon, so it should be another good one out there!
