Sounded like it was a tough one out there yesterday, from reports I received and also judging by the lack of bugs on the building this morning – just a few small caddis around an October caddis or two. The bright sun stuck around all day yesterday, and we had a bump in the flows in the evening, which definitely cooled off the water, slowing things down a bit in the evening. We had rain overnight along with some cool temps. Today and tomorrow are looking excellent however, with daytime temps in the mid-60s, which will help the fishing improve likely all the way to Buckingham if the flows stay up (who knows if that will happen). Look for some clouds today – could bring the olives back out again!
