Alright, will someone please explain to me what is going on with the flows here? Not that I am complaining – I LOVE the additional water, but it doesn’t quite jive with the flow plan, and Montague looked pretty good to me. Ah well, this must be one of those gift horse / mouth scenarios. Regardless, last night was a bit of hit-and-miss. Certain areas / pools fished well, while others were definitely slower, likely because of the colder slug of water moving through. That shock should stabilize, and will do nothing but help us as long as it keeps up! Bright sun again predicted for today, so look for slower daytime fishing (Deposit excepted) and hopefully some fantastic late afternoon hatches.

Still a few of these hatching as well. Baetis vagans male dun. Photo by: Bart Larmouth
