Yesterday fished well in between wind gusts with a mixture of Hendricksons, olives, and caddis.  When the wind was blowing there were white caps out there.  When the weather calmed down in the evening and the caddis in the air looked like snow the fish were a lot more friendly.  Hendrickson spinners also helped bring them up.  Today looks like a mix of clouds, light intermittent rain, and maybe a thunder shower.  If the weatherman is correct today I would call the winds “medium”
