The wind.   We had decent hatches of hendricksons, olives, and lots of caddis yesterday.  I’m tired of the upstream winds that are double what the weatherman predicts.  Despite the wind or at least in between gusts the fish were up and happy.  The steady risers weren’t picky but the intermittent fish were tough.  A few March Browns floated by so hopefully by the weekend the fish recognize them as food. Cannonsville is 100.6% capacity with rain in the tonight’s forecast.
