Well the sun reared its ugly head yesterday, and shut the hatching down whenever it made its presence known. That being said, the warm, humid air made for some great hatching when that big glowing ball of fusion hit behind the clouds. We had fish rising on the West, and reports that the Main fished well into the dark of the evening. Today, we’re expecting some showers during the day, with much cooler temperatures all around. Good for the mid-day fishing, bad for those of us who are in a shop until 6PM. We’ll see how it goes!

Although he’s not an Intern, anymore, I will reiterate that interns shouldn’t catch fish like this. David Burgher with a great WB brown. Photo by: Steve Shen
