I think everyone’s still windburned from yesterday. It came up early, and stayed steady throughout the day, with some pretty substantial gusts right after lunch. Needless to say, this kept many of the smaller bugs (Hebes and Pseudos) off the water, until it laid down towards evening, when we had some limited activity. We also had one of our coldest nights of the year last night, so as you can see below, the rivers are starting off good and cold today, meaning that we’ll likely see bugs more towards the afternoon, once the sun has come out and had a chance to warm the place up a bit. Those who predict the weather (and whose name shall not be spoken) are constantly changing the forecasted wind for the day, so we will just have to wait and see what Mother Nature has in store for us!
