Today looks better already with clouds already in the sky.  The chance of rain has been reduced to 10% with no accumulation but even a few clouds will beat the bright sun we’ve had lately.  We’re seeing little olives during the day so hopefully the clouds make the fish feel comfortable enough to rise earlier.  There are some hebes and isonychias out there but tons of caddis on the Mainstem.  We haven’t seen a lot of caddis eaten off the surface so they are probably eating them as they emerge or when they dive to lay eggs.  The weather looks good for the the next week.  Hopefully the forecast doesn’t change and we see more clouds with rain.
