We woke up to some showers this morning. The over-all precipitation shouldn’t do much to affect the fishing. At this point any rainfall can only help, and we’ll get some cloud cover out of the deal too. Olives and Sulphurs on the smaller side (#18-22) will be your best bet. The East below Harvard, Main […]
