Today looks like it will be a carbon copy of yesterday.  Starting off cool with decent fog giving way to sunshine and warm temperatures.  Kind of a pleasant Fall day ahead of us.  There are a few people out throwing streamers early trying to beat the sun.  You will find some willing fish once the fog burns off but it it has been better in low light conditions.  We have decent water temperatures throughout the system so if you want to nymph lower water with more seams and structure the Mainstem and lower East are solid options now.  The West is still running high but there are spots good for wading depending on your comfort level.  Olives are still our mainstay with some cahill / stenos, hebes, and isonychias.  Dry dropper combos can be deadly in some of the riffles.  We should have more clouds moving through tomorrow setting us up for a good weather weekend with light rain and overcast skies.
