We have had very unstable rainy and cool weather dropping surface water temperatures from 58 down to 54 yesterday. Damsel nymphs and halfbacks casting to shallow water produced fish. Panther Martins were also working but fish were hitting them but not being hooked well, worms under a float were working. Small chironomids were coming off and the birds were feeding on them but the fish were not actively feeding on them until later in the afternoon as the water warmed up. Size 16’s were producing the best, some larger chironomids were seen but not in heavy numbers. We need nicer warmer sunny weather to get the water temps up to get the hatches going again.
