2017 model Yeti Hopper on sale!

The streamer bite was generally slow yesterday based on the reports we got.  Most anglers reported a few follows and a solid grab or two, but it was generally pretty slow.  The bug activity was also mixed based on where you were.  A couple of people reported good BWO hatches on the West, while others reported seeing seeing only a few mayflies and some caddis.  Surface activity was also slow with only a few rises reported to us.  The forecast for today is calling for sunny skies with a high of 59 degrees and winds of 5-10 mph out of the NW.
