We are still seeing a good mix of hendricksons, blue quills, and caddis.  There were a few spinners mixed in but we are still waiting for the massive blue quill and hendrickson spinner falls.  You may see some spinners mid day or early evening over the next few days.  Possibly even mixed in with the hatching duns.  Yesterday was a decent day with low wind and clouds.  We started off cool so it took a while for things to get going.  We were a bit warmer last night so most of the system is starting off a few degrees warmer today.  Today looks like another great weather day with light winds and a mix of sun with some clouds.  The flow at Harvard has dropped to 641 cfs this morning which opens up a little more water for wading.
