Despite the colder weather Friday, it turned out to be a good day for dry fly fishing, with lots of olives popping up between 2 and 5 PM. The only bit of trouble was the wind, which put the fish down at times, and certainly made you wish for a nice set of hand warmers at the same time. We’re looking at similar conditions today, with hopefully less of a stiff breeze during the afternoon. There will likely be a little smattering of rain/sleet/snow as the day progresses, so keep the warm and waterproof gear handy!
