Today looks like a great day to be on the water. We have some light rain falling that should total just over 1/10″. We have good cloud cover and light and variable wind. Hopefully that pushes the hatches a little earlier in the day. Small olives, Heptagenia, and a few Isonychias should cover most of the bases. Yesterday was similar with a bit more sun. Nymphing worked well early with the dry fly shots coming later in the day.
