It was another tough one out there yesterday. While some browns were out and active swiping at streamers, the majority decided to lay low for the majority of the day. The bugs did a little bit of the same, with sporadic flushes appearing from mid-afternoon on, with just a little glimmer of action right at dark. I am not really sure why it was slow, but we did have a mild pressure change sweep through, bringing the warm weather in, which could be the culprit in this case. Today we’ve got a carbon-copy on our hands with warm air temps, very little wind, and a decent amount of cloud cover. Coupled with a fairly steady release, this should get the bugs (and fish!) up and moving today!
