There were decent bugs and a stiff wind yesterday. Despite the wind people found fish willing to eat. Caddis were sporadic mid day offering some shots. We’re still seeing a few Hendrickson spinners in the evening on sections of the West Branch. Cahills, sulphurs, march Browns, and Gray Fox are picking up. A few Green Drakes have been spotted this week so have the big flies ready just in case.
Today will be cooler peaking at 65 degrees. We’ll see mostly sunshine with a few clouds. Wind will be 10 – 15 mph from the North.
