The weather looked great for most of the day yesterday.  We had clouds, some light rain, and light wind.  There were a few olives here and there and a fish or two were beginning to eat.  Then around 1:30 the wind picked up and never stopped.  There are still a lot of caddis in the bushes but they did not want to fly in that wind.  There were some big splashy one time rises so nymphing or swinging wets would have been the best plan.  While it will be a little cooler today the wind should be 5 – 10 mph.  That’s a great improvement over yesterday.
