We’re coming off the coldest night of the Fall so far with a dusting of light snow on the ground.  Today we should see a mix of precipitation with air temperatures in the low 40’s with some wind gusts.  Luckily we will see a warming trend by mid week bringing the daytime high air temperatures back into the 60’s.  There are still some olives mixed with a few isonychias and heptagenia around but most of the action has been streamers on the West Branch and nymphs on the lower East Branch and Upper Mainstem.
