Apologies on the late update to you early readers – internet issues here in Starlight this morning. You know how it is out here in the sticks – the wind blows, we lose wireless. Anyway, yesterday turned out to be a pretty decent day, with activity throughout the afternoon. It wasn’t gangbusters by any stretch of the imagination, but depending on where you were there were some good sporadic hatches with feeding activity. The evening cooled down dramatically, and this did shut down the hatching as we approached dark. Today we’re looking at slightly warmer temps during the day, with a few more clouds in the forecast. This should (hopefully for those of us who won’t get to fish until evening) keep the air temps up a bit, and allow the hatching to continue into the evening.
