Yesterday started off nice but a little windy.  It looked good for swinging caddis pupa in the riffles or nymphing the drop offs.  The wind dropped around 4 and some olives came off and the caddis came out of the bushes.  There were even a handful of Isonychias hatching but few spinners.  There were some steady fish on the olives but the ones that were sporadic liked any dark caddis pattern.  We didn’t see anything eat the isos.  There is a little wind already this morning that Wunderground shows sticking around all day.  Definitely bring the nymph box but keep some dries handy in case they are wrong.  We have a decent chance of some light rain but it won’t be enough to budge the flows.
