There’s light rain falling this morning and the gauges are just starting to register the additional water. The forecast calls for rain off and on for most of the day but nothing torrential which should keep the feeder creeks from getting too muddy. Start with streamers but keep that dry fly rod handy as the rain ends later this afternoon. We saw several different varieties of spinners in the evening (olives, Isos and Stenos), along with brown caddis.
