A little bit warmer out there, and none of the ‘predicted’ showers made it our way. We had slow and steady action out front in Home Pool for the majority of the day, the majority from our friendly neighborhood Pseudos. The fish would still take an iso or two (of course!) but the yellow bug (Steno & Hebes) hatch wasn’t as strong as it has been. Today we’re looking at some much-needed rain to keep the flows on the East and the Main up at floatable levels. The air temps shouldn’t be too bad, so as long as we don’t have a deluge, we’re looking at another great fall day of fishing!
