The olives were out again by mid afternoon yesterday.  Unfortunately so was the sun and wind.  There were some fish eating off the surface early but it was tough to find a steady one that would stay up in the sun.  Nymphing and swinging wets was definitely more productive until the sun dropped behind the hills.  There are enough isonychias and cahill / stenos around that you can try some larger nymphs along with the small olive nymphs.  Mix it up until you find something the fish want.  Streamer fishing has been decent in the morning from first light until the fog burns off the water.  Today is another sunny day but the winds will be lighter.  We are on a warming trend so keep an eye out for flying ants over the next few days.
