Man did that wind blow yesterday. Gusts up to 30 or so, with more regularity than I would like to admit. It did lay down in the evening, but those fishing subsurface during the worst of it had a great time with eager rainbows ready to eat. We had Olives in the evening, as well as a smattering of hebes, stenos, and the occasional Iso. The bright sun was not a big help, but the wind did blow some flying ants into the water in spots, and the fish were definitely eager to take those. Today we are looking at a much calmer day wind-wise, as well as temps in the low 70s, with “partly cloudy” skies. If those clouds ever decide to thicken, we will likley have some good afternoon action. Otherwise, the evening will be the way to go!
