Yesterday was a warm one out there.  The bright sun made fishing tough during the day.  Most success came nymphing and swinging wet flies through deeper runs and faster riffles.  There were fish rising during the day but it was all about timing and a little luck.  The hatching picked up in the afternoon with the normal olives plus some caddis.  There are still some Isonychias around the the olives are definitely the key mayfly right now.  Today looks like a repeat of yesterday with both similar flows/releases and the sun.  The wind should be less of an issue today if Accuweather is correct.    The West Branch under the 191 Bridge is 54 degrees this morning.
