Yesterday was a decent olive day with clouds and a little of the rain hanging around longer than Accuweather predicted.  We also had the Cahill type mayflies and a few Isonychias mixed in.  Streamers are producing well early before the fog burns off and the sun hits the water.  Nymphing mid- day has brought some fish to the net before the afternoon hatches.  We’ve had success matching the naturals coming off with #14 – 20 Copper Johns and Pheasant Tails.  It is cool this morning with air temps predicted to be in the mid 60s today.  The West Branch under the 191 Bridge is 50 degrees this morning.
