It sounds like most people had a great day yesterday.  Another day with lots of caddis, small hendricksons, and march brown / gray fox.  We had a very beif storm come through in the afternoon and the fishing really seemed to pick up after that.  We didn’t get too much rain and all of the rivers in the system are falling.  There are now really good wade opportunities on all the rivers and floating is still fine on most of them.  We may see a little more sunshine today with the air temp reaching the low 70’s.  Wind 8 -10 mph from the North.  It looks like a great day to be on the water.
