We are looking at another sunny day with air temperatures reaching the low 70’s!  Yesterday was nice but windy.  Today’s wind should be light and variable peaking around 5 mph according to Wunderground.  It looks like another pleasant week ahead with temperatures staying a bit high for the end of October.  We’re still seeing olives and a few heptagenia and isonychias.  The dry fly fishing has been better on the wider streams  in the slower pools.  The West Branch is still running high from the release and has some color to it.  There is still good streamer opportunity on the West with a possibility of finding a few risers.
