So much for the “calm” winds predicted for yesterday – the white caps on Lake Lenore definitely told a different story. There were bugs, and fish ready to eat, but the all day breezes did not allow the former to be seen by the latter, so rises were few and far between, as the wind did not die down until well into dark. We had cold overnight temps, which will definitely slow the start to the action today, and are looking at actual fall temps in the mid 50s, with a mix of clouds and sun. NYC dropped the release a bit again today, which will certainly have an affect on the West, but the Main should not feel too much of a jolt.
