Today looks like a great day to be on the water with light wind, cloud cover, and even some light rain. Definitely have your small olive box with some Isonychia and Heptagenia patterns Nymphing and streamers could be a good bet in these conditions too. There is algae up in Deposit so stay below Hale Eddy if you’re fishing underneath. Last night was another cool one so water temps look great this morning.

Today will be 67 degrees with clouds in the morning and rain developing in the afternoon. Total rainfall should be .08″ during the day with an additional .35″ overnight. Wind will be light and variable.
