We started yesterday with a decent amount of Stenos on the water mid- afternoon.  The fish never really got going in the sun but there was opportunity if you could mark one and keep putting the fly over the lane.  We never saw steady feeding but it was enough tow work with- kind of a mid day bonus.  Once the Stenos ended people blind fish Isonychias in the riffles were putting some fish in the net.  Once the sun dropped the fish were eating small sulphurs.  It played out like a normal sulphur hatch with a lot of the early eats 2″ under the surface and then right around dark there were more noses poking up.  We are starting off with decent cloud cover this morning and they are calling for a 1/2 inch of rain scattered throughout the day.  Sounds like a decent fishing weather and we expect a lot of the rain to soak into the ground.  Hopefully the rain brings more olives to the surface during the day.  The water temp at the Hancock Bridge is starting a little higher this morning at 56 degrees- still decent for fishing.
