We had a few minutes of very light rain yesterday but the clouds stuck around all day.  The storms seemed spotty with some areas receiving a bit more.  The freestones and feeder streams are getting low so the tailwaters are settling into pretty steady flows from the releases.  The weather settled in and the cooler temps definitely feel better.  We should peak in the mid 60’s today, have winds out of the North 5 – 10 mph, and have a mostly cloudy sky.  Sounds like a good fishing day.  Olives, steno / cahills, and Isonychias should cover most of the hatching today.
