We had some rain overnight but so far the flows have only seen a slight bump up since yesterday.  Most people reported fewer olives yesterday than the previous few days but there still were enough to get some fish eating on the West Branch in the late afternoon.  Today we are looking at temps in the low 50’s with some intermittent rain so hopefully the hatching comes a little earlier today.  There have been a few fish eating sporadically already this morning likely on a mix of left over olives from yesterday and a few caddis that found there way on to the water.  If the wind stays down this could be a decent day for late October.  The West Branch under the 191 Bridge in Hancock is 52 degrees this morning.

A nice October morning so far
