Our shop will close this Friday 10/20 for the 2023 season. Nothing bad- we just need a little time off. We will reopen April 1st like normal. In the meantime we’ll be back on the blog in November for the limited fly of the week.
We’ll have a bit more sun today but hopefully enough clouds will stick around to push the olives. There should be no wind today for a change. We’re still in that Fall mode of lots of small olives, some Heptagenia, and a few small Isonychias. We are finding rising fish most afternoons. Some days the spinners are dropping early so keep an eye on the water surface to see what;s there if you do find rising fish. Nymphs and wets would be a good bet before the hatches begin.
Today will be 59 degrees and partly cloudy. Wind will be light and variable.
