The wind was rough yesterday but some people found fish eating on top. Nymphing was okay early but by mid afternoon there were some small hendricksons and caddis on the water. It surprised everyone. The lower river sections are seeing some March Browns, Gray fox, Light Cahills, and a few Sulphurs are starting. We’re coming off a very cold night so it may take a bit for the water temps to climb today.
It will hit 66 degrees today with sunshine. Wind will be 5 – 10 mph from the South. That will feel like nothing after yesterday.
