Yesterday the bright sun made fishing a little tougher than it has been but there were still fish rising throughout the day in sections.  A good mix of Hendricksons, some Blue Quills, and lots of caddis in the evening seemed to make the fish happy.  Some people reported fish rising all day while others found only occasional risers until the sun dropped.  Today is going to be very warm with a possible thunder shower in the afternoon.  Some cloud cover would definitely help but the bugs will come and the fish will rise.
