Ended up being cloudier than expected yesterday, which made the Olives very happy, as well as the trout up and eating them. They started a bit later on the West Branch, more towards 3 or so, but kept going until past 5. The Lower Main (below Buckingham) picked up a bit earlier, as the water temps were a bit warmer down that way. We’re cooling off a bit today, with temps not quite hitting 50, and a good amount of cloud cove, so I’d expect the bugs to hatch a bit later in the day again, and likely continue on a bit more into the evening as well.
