October 12th Fishing Report

Showers and thunderstorms likely before noon, then scattered showers after 5pm. Cloudy through mid morning, then gradual clearing, with a steady temperature around 57. Breezy, with a west wind 8 to 18 mph, with gusts as high as 31 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. New precipitation amounts of less than a tenth of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.
Season ends after October 15th.  Get out there and fish.
  Clouds this morning should have fish in a good mood.  Clearing skies and wind will have anglers in a bit of a crummy mood later in the day.....
Fishing is still good.  Difficult in many cases with the low clear water, sun and wind, but we're still catching fish.
Focus on the riffles and broken water.  Nymphing is key as hoppers are continuing to slide in effectiveness.  We are still using smaller foam patterns as indicator flies for a dropper, but true 'match the hatch' hoppers are slowing down with the cooler days.
  Olive hatches are around and fish will be rising to them, but they have not been as predictable as usual for this time of year.  Have a few greased lightnings and pearl butt secrets in your fly box to fool those fussy olive eaters!
