We had clouds for most of the morning but by mid-afternoon they gave way to a blue sky.  Nymphing seemed to be the most productive method with some risers showing in the late afternoon.  It really helped to concentrate on shaded areas and dropoffs.  Think small on the nymphs to match the olives that are hatching.  And we’ll say this all Fall- swing caddis pupa and wet flies to match the caddis emerging and diving to lay eggs.  We’re see a lot of diving egg layers this time of year.  It looks like the rain pushed off until Sunday and Monday but we should still have cloud cover today and tomorrow.  Winds should be light today.
