Strangely enough, yesterday went just about as ‘expected’ – the rain came and there was ample bug activity for the majority of day, due to warmer temperatures. The fish on the West Branch are now quite a bit spookier due to the lower water levels, but were still willing to take well-presented flies. The usual suspects as well – Isos, stenos, etc. Today is looking like a much warmer day, but still with cloud cover and a possible Thunderstorm. This could be a good one all day long, judging by the current air temp, and the fact I just saw fish rising in Home Pool. I’m just going to hope they’re not on the Caddis again.
