The thunderstorms yesterday mostly hit the West Branch. Luckily they were brief, the river did not get muddy and is up only a small amount. The cool night has the water temperatures starting off a little lower today. These next few days of milder air temperatures and lows in the 40’s will help the system stay fishable. Sulphurs, Isonychia, Light Blue Winged Olives and tan caddis were the most common hatches.
