Mixed bag on the water yesterday, depending on where you were fishing. The West had mediocre bug activity, but fish that were definitely hungry, and eager to eat. Occasional risers could be caught if cast to, taking our favorite – Iso duns. The Main was pretty quiet all afternoon, with very little hatching activity to speak of, and even fewer fish up and about. As the temp dropped yesterday evening, pretty much all activity ceased – light switch style.  Today we are looking a cool, cloudy day with passing showers here and there. The lower air pressure should get some of the fish up and moving again on the Main, and will hopefully encourage more fish on the West to show themselves as well!
