May 16th Fishing Report

Sunny, with a high near 76. Light northwest wind increasing to 6 to 11 mph in the morning.
Creeks are clear and low. The sun had fishing a bit more difficult yesterday than normal.  Fishing was the best in the shaded areas, and in the broken riffles.  Hatches came off late in the day and were much more sparse than the past few days.  Today's sun and high pressure system is similar to yesterday so hopefully a bit more 'stable' weather has things back on track.
We are seeing caddisflies and craneflies daily.  And while it is still too soon to get excited about, we have started to see a sulphur or two.  As the water temperature warms a bit and the days get a bit longer, watch for them hatching in the evenings.
 Subsurface fishing has been solid on euro squirrels, brush hogs, and hot spot pheasant tails.  Streamers and leeches have been good, but typically only morning and evening when the sun is off the water.
