We saw decent hatching throughout yesterday afternoon with plenty of fish rising.  Sections of the system had most fish feeding subsurface on caddis pupa and hendrickson emergers with an occasional eat off the top.  Other sections had fish eating off the top most of the day.  Luck of the draw.  Wet flies worked okay on the subsurface fish.  Today looks great with a little rain, possible thunder shower, and cloud cover all day.
