Yesterday was a mix of periods that fished well and some dead time.  The odd part is some of the best fishing was mid morning.  Possibly the sun breaking through at times slowed things down.  By evening things settled down and the bugs came as the sun dropped.  Overall is was a good day with a lot of decent fish landed.  We are seeing a lot of bugs on the water with caddis, cahills, sulphurs, and gray fox making up the most food.  A few green drakes have been spotted but so far we haven’t seen fishable numbers of those- they can’t be too far off.  Today we should see the air temp in the high 70’s, a partly cloudy sky, and wind 5- 10 from the North.  A comfortable day to be on the water.  Wading levels are still great with decent enough flows for floating.
