The bright sun hitting the low water bumped up the water temps just enough to push the hatching to later in the day to after dark depending on where you were fishing.  Once the sun dropped there were a number of small olive spinners in the air with a few caddis mixed in.  The olives were small enough you really had to be set up in slow tailouts to make it work. Today is going to be another warm one at 83 degrees.  Wind shouldn’t be an issue.  Hopefully that pushes the flying ants.  We’ll cool back down a bit tomorrow and the weekend looks great with daytime highs in the low 70’s.  That should really help the water temps.
