The bright sun for most of the day made the fish very shy and the fishing very tough.  There were a lot of one and two time risers that never seemed to come back up.  There was an okay mix of Green Drakes, Stenos, small olives, and sulphurs but the fish never really got going until the sun dropped.  Once the sun left the water the fish found the sulphurs and played nice right into dark.  Some spots had coffin flies and other spots were all sulphur duns.  The weather looks a little better for today with some clouds rolling in late afternoon and some showers tonight with a 1/4 inch of rain.
