The sun came out yesterday and it was a really nice day to be on the water.  The bugs didn’t really show on the mid West Branch but the guys who were nymphing seemed to do really well.  Smaller flies seem to be working best right now matching the small olives that are hatching sporadically.  There are still caddis in the bushes but yesterday they decided to stay in the bushes.  Today looks like another nice day with air temps climbing to the mid 40’s by the afternoon. From here on out nymphing will be your best bet but carry olives and caddis just in case.  Tonight the temps are going to drop pretty low and we may see some snow showers.
