It was a pretty beautiful fall day out there yesterday, with a much warmer evening than we’ve had over the last few days, producing some pretty decent hatches as we approached dark. The Iso spinners still decided to tease us and not fall, but at least they were there! On the water, the heptagenias were coming off strong, as were Iso duns in certain sections of the river. It seems Stockport was the most productive run of the evening, yielding some nice fish in both the pool and the riffles. Today looks to be a spring day in September. We already had some rain overnight, which did not greatly affect the flows. What we are looking forwrad to today is cloud cover, humidity, sprinkles, and maybe an t-storm in the afternoon. Sounds like a BANNER olive day to me!
