Anglers reported a very productive day on the water Monday, with most of them reaching double digit fish counts primarily on dry flies. The anglers I spoke with were spread throughout the system. There’s still plenty of time to get some dry fly action in, so don’t miss out.   Today’s forecast is calling for  a high/low of  90*/68* with partly sunny skies and SW winds at 5-10 mph.
