It was cold yesterday.  It was windy.  It actually fished better than it has in days.  Maybe the pressure settled as the front came through or the fish settled down in the Yo Yo releases but either way they were happy to chase streamers and rise in  some sections when the wind would die down.  Some would only chase but there were enough fish willing to commit to make it worth fishing in 49 degrees, 15 mph wind, and light rain.  Today should be nicer with air temperatures in the mid 50’s and a bit of sunshine.  Wind will be much more manageable around 5 – 7 mph.
