A landing net found on the Upper Mainstem was turned in.  If you’re missing one send us and email

We had a few clouds come through and tease us yesterday but we dealt with sun most of the day.  The bright sun seemed to push the hatches to later in the day.  Once the sun started to drop we had some more surface activity.  Nymphing or swinging wets would be a good bet during the mid day sun, especially with all the caddis around.  You may find some fish slashing caddis in the riffles so keep a dry fly handy too.  The big bugs are still around so carry your March Browns, Gray Fox, Cahill, and Isonychia patterns.  Sulphurs and olives are around in the evening too.  Some sections are seeing Coffin Flies while others are still seeing March Brown Spinners in the air. They should hit the water soon.  Wunderground’s forecast shows today as mostly cloudy and 73 degrees.  Wind shouldn’t be a problem at 5 mph from the North.
