Well those clouds I expected yesterday certainly never appeared! The bright sun definitely hampered things more than a little bit, at least in the early going of the the day, but the bugs were still on the surface. While the sulphurs tended to be the primary insect seen, there were definitely plenty of Grey Fox and Green Drakes around to keep the day interesting. Today cooler temps are called for, along with some rain showers here and there. If that ends up producing serious clouds, they today could be another banner day, especially with the lack of wind! Spinner falls, here we come! Also FYI – Pepacton Reservoir is currently spilling, we’re waiting to see if the same is true at Cannonsville with the large influx from above near Walton. Stay tuned!
