Yesterday’s hatching was decent with olives once again being the bug of choice.  The fish were definitely happier eating on top when we had the early morning fog or cloud cover during the day.  We had periods of brief rain that gave way to afternoon sunshine.  Once the sun hit you had to hunt down the risers and be patient.  If Wunderground is correct we should be in better shape today with decent afternoon cloud cover and winds dropping back in the early evening.  Nymphing may be a good daytime bet to start off.  It’s going to be cooler today with air temps in the high 50’s.  Add in the cloud cover and cool nights and the system will have great water temperatures over the next few days.
