What a day yesterday! Bugs and fish all day on the West Branch in between the rain and thunder – it was like a little piece of April in June. Today we are looking at clouds and sun, with temps in the high 70’s, which shouldn’t heat up the water too much today, and we expect the sulphurs and isos to continue in big numbers. Traffic on the river is down just a little, so the fish are feeling less pressure during the week, which will hopefully make for a great weekend!
