The bright sun during the day hurt the rising activity again.  There were some fish eating caddis and the occasional March Brown/Gray Fox during the day but nymphing was definitely more productive.  We had a few clouds roll in and out but not enough to make a huge difference.  There were a lot of bugs on the water at dark, pretty much any kind you could think of.  The trick became figuring out which one they were eating.  Today looks warm, humid, with a few thunderstorms mixed in which should help the fishing.
