The wind made yesterday a really tough one on the water. Some of those gusts had to be over 25 mph.  At least the rain held off during the day.  On a good note the flows are still dropping throughout the system despite the overnight rain.  Everything looks good this morning.  Today’s rain forecast has been reduced considerably and we should only see 1/4″ of rain spread out over 7 hours.  The air temp will hit the low 70’s .  It looks like a good day to be on the water.  Hendricksons, caddis, blue quill spinners, and olives.
