A bit better out there yesterday for some, but there was definitely a dearth of bugs for others. The hatches definitely started later in the day, but also continued a bit longer into evening than they have been as of late, shutting down gradually from 6:30 on, instead of the “lightswitch” effect we’ve been having around 6 lately. The bugs themselves were the same – Isos, Hebes, Stenos, and Pseudos, with the fish focusing mostly on the first and last of that list. Today, we’re looking at mostly cloudy skies, with calm winds, and temps around 70. Constant pressure should also help to get the fish and bugs active, making for a good Saturday!
