We woke up to a light steady rain but that should end within the next few hours. The river flows are climbing a bit on the 6:30 gauge update but the Home Pool is clear right now. It definitely looks like a good day to be on the water with the light rain, cooler water temps, and clouds. Small olives, Isonychias, and some Heptagenias should be around depending on what river section you fish.

Today will be 67 degrees rain early turning to clouds in the afternoon. We may still see an afternoon shower. Wunderground is showing today’s rainfall at .03″. Wind will be 5 – 10 mph from the North.
