Not too bad out there yesterday. It was definitely a pool-by-pool scenario, with certain areas fishing well, and others pretty quiet. The wind definitely pushed bugs back to the vegetation when it was up, but once the sun dropped down, it allowed for some pretty decent spinner action, along with decent duns popping off as well. Today, we’ve got more clouds in the forecast which is always a boon, with temps in the mid-60s. If the pressure remains constant we should see a repeat of yesterday’s hatching, but hopefully this time with a few more fish poking their heads up and looking for food!
