We had a steady rain yesterday that put some color in the water later in the day.  Most anglers reported a tough day, but a few anglers we spoke with reported having a decent day swinging streamers before the water went off color.  The clarity of the West and Main cleared to a decent level over night as shown in the pics.  The forecast for today is calling for cloudy skies with winds out of the WNW at 10-15 mph.
