The wind made fishing tough yesterday.  It felt like upstream 15 mph all day long.  That kind of wind makes it tough to set the boat and to cast.  If you found a place to hide it was comfortable.  The wind pushed most people to streamers and nymphs with mixed results.  We are in the midst of a decent weather change so the front may have something to do with it.  We had a little rain overnight but the real story today is going to be the air temperature.  We dropped back in to the 40’s overnight and will only climb into the low 50’s today.  Tonight we drop back into the high 20’s.  The we gradually warm up during the week to temps in the high 60’s and low 70’s.  The wind may start off high this morning but at least it’s downstream today.  It may start off as a streamer day but we may see some surface activity if the wind drops in the late afternoon.
