Hey! The fish were looking up yesterday! We had a good mix of bugs when the wind quieted down, and the warmer air temps were a nice respite from the previous day, that much is for sure. The browns were definitley interested in streamers (in the shade at least), while the ‘bows were up and taking Isos and Stenos on the Main, with a few eating the plentiful Pseudos on the West. Today, we’ve got pretty much a carbon-copy day in the works, albeit with (mercifully) less wind. I would anticipate the bugs showing up late morning, with the possibility of a good Trico spinner fall around 11 or so. Regardless, the evening should be a fun time to be out there as well – good luck!
