The flow at Stilesville is a steady 863 cfs.  Today looks a lot like yesterday.  Clouds early giving way to sunshine.  Should be less wind.  There were olives on the water mid afternoon along with some Heptagenia.  We didn’t see huge numbers of bugs but it was enough to get some fish up and feeding.  Cloud cover and breaks in the wind definitely helped.  Nymphing was a good choice early in the day and during the sunny part of the afternoon.
