The cooler nights have helped the river temps. Most rivers are starting off a few degrees cooler than yesterday. The flows have dropped a bit from the runoff subsiding and everything looks good this morning. We should se a mix of clouds and sun early changing to mostly clouds in the afternoon. 70 degrees with wind 5 – 10 mph from the south. It looks like a good day to be on the water. We’ve been fishing a mix of caddis and spinners early with more mayflies in the afternoon into the evening. March browns, f=gray fox, sulphurs, and cahills are making up most o the hatch. The colder river sections are still seeing some #16 Hendricksons.
