Yesterday was a mix of overcast skies, wind and drizzle – not a bad combo when we have warmer air temperatures. Today looks like another unseasonably warm day with plenty of clouds. We’ve been having luck on streamers during the afternoon, then finding rising fish later on as the sun drops. We’re seeing the usual mix of small olives, fall Isos and some leftover Stenos. There have been more caddis about but not many on the water’s surface to get the fish interested. The water levels throughout the system continue to drop, there are more opportunities for wading now.
