The wind was definitely a factor yesterday until late afternoon.  Once it settled down it was actually very pleasant out for the end of October and there were a few fish rising to the left over olives.  Today looks much better on paper with winds at 5 mph and gusts to 8 mph.  The air temperature should be around 60 with mostly sun.  We should see decent Pseudo hatches mid afternoon plus the odd left over Isonychia.  We have been seeing a lot of caddis in the evenings.  They are mostly flying but occasionally one hits the water while laying eggs  and the fish get a chance to eat. If you see a slashing one timer try putting a #16 dark caddis over it.
