Yesterday looked decent on paper but never really reached it’s dry fly potential.  We had clouds, winds were tolerable and things looked good.  We did have rising water on the West Branch and Mainstem as a result of the recent Yo Yo releases.  Today looks similar weather wise but the water has been pretty steady for 24 hours.  Hopefully things settle down and the olives and isonychias come today.  In the meantime there were a lot of people throwing streamers on the West with mixed results.  Fish were landed but not as many as expected.  Today is a new day.
The Yo Yo releases need to stop
