Yesterday fished very well with a great mix of Hendricksons, Blue Quills, and Apple Caddis.  The fish were up and happy when the sun was blocked by clouds in the afternoon.  There were a lot of fish playing nice and a lot of fish landed.  The lower water levels, warm air temps and sun have finally warmed the rivers enough to get some good afternoon dry fly action.  The air temps stayed surprisingly warm last night so we are starting off with great water temps this morning.
