The air temperature stayed low yesterday and we had a little rain in the afternoon.  It wasn’t terrible for November- just enough to let you know that winter is coming.  There were a few olives on the water but rising fish were hard to find.  It was definitely a good day to nymph some of the deeper runs.  The window of opportunity is getting shorter with the colder temps.  Today looks a little better only because we should see some sun.  The wind will be light.  The cold night has caused he water temperatures to drop so they will take a while to warm up and get things going.
