Apologies on the late post. In this modern era, Cell Phones should not take a front seat to good old fashioned alarm clocks. Either way, yesterday was a boom or bust, depending on whom you spoke to. We had areas of the river fish like gangbusters, and others where there was a dearth of action. Late afternoon we were smacked with a BIG rainstorm, that while it didn’t affect the river level that dramatically, certainly affected the fishermen dramatically, with guys being soaked to the bone and running for dry clothing right after the weather passed through. Those that were brave (or dumb) enough to hang out after the storm were rewarded with some great late evening hatching when the pressure balanced out. As for today, there is not as much volatile weather predicted, but the sun may be out for the majority of the day, so when you hit the water, be looking for the shady spots, and prep yourself for a great evening!
