Yesterday ended up being as pleasant as predicted.  Once the sun came out everything warmed up and it was a great day to be on the water.  There were some olives hatching and a welcomed but unexpected brief hatch of Isonychias.  The fish were eating but in late fall it seems your best bet is usually to move around until you see active fish.  Today’s weather prediction looks incredible with air temps around 70 degrees and light winds.  Today is likely the warmest day we will see until Spring.  Definitely take advantage of it if you have the opportunity.  The West Branch under the 191 Bridge in Hancock is 49 degrees this morning.
