We were defeated by the wind.  There were good numbers of isonychia spinners gathering on the West Branch last night.  They were going to fall.  Fish were going to eat.  One good gust of wind and they went back to the trees.  The wind was tough and overall it would have been a good day to nymph or swing wets.  There were enough bugs out that there was a shot at dry fly fishing if you found a protected area.  The bushes are still full of caddis and the olives will hang around for a while still.  It looks like we are all getting the same storm today.  It looks like it’ll be off the a slow start and building towards the afternoon.  Hopefully there is a window to fish  before the wind and rain come later.
