Not bad out there yesterday, so long as the wind stayed out of your way. When the clouds were around, the olives made themselves known, and even the isos made an appearance here and there. Acivity slowed towards dark, as the temps began to drop. It also looks like our release on the West has dropped to 375 cfs for the time being – I’m looking into it, but it should not adversely affect the fishing, being such a small change. Today, we’re looking at bright sun, with highs in the mid-60s. With the water starting of very cold this morning, the sun should not be a deal breaker, and you’ll likely see some activity right in the middle of the day, especially the hebes and stenos.
