What a day yesterday! For those fishing the West, there were small Olives out from about 2PM on, and then as evening approached, it virtually did not matter where you were, you had bug soup on the water, ingredients: Hendricksons, Paraleps, Olives, Caddis, and Mach Browns. The fish were on one of those rare benders where they would eat just about any of those (if the imitation and presentation were proper), and were not necessarily keyed in on one particular bug. Definitely a great day all around. Today, we still have some storms predicted, with some bigger thunderstorms being called for later in the evening / night, so we will see what that may bring. Pressure changes throughout the day will also play with the hatching a little bit, but will hopefully not shut it down completely. Let’s see what happens!

See? Bart does get to fish every now and then! The hippie hair gets in his eyes sometimes, making for some interesting poses. Photo: Dave Lisnock
