Stable weather has returned but fishing has been spotty, water temps at the surface are 65 Deg. with cool nights and the full moon possibly making the fish feed at night and low light in the mornings and evenings. Fish are being caught in 18 feet of water near the bottom and a few feet above or even higher in the water column. Throat samples show blood worms and pupae in brown and green along with light green damsels. No visible adults seen except for #14 and smaller. Casting and stripping in the weeds or weed bed edges have produced fish through the day with evening fishing being the best. Some guests did better than others fishing the deeper water. Caddis and damsels are hatching and some dragon flies are hatching. Worm under a float and trollers trolling Hot Shots/Kwik Fish/gangtrolls with wedding band dabbed with a small worm caught fish. In the evenings the adult caddis were being taken on the surface by trout in weedy shallow water, the nymphs  also are being fed upon just under the surface.
