September 22nd Fishing ReportA 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 4pm. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 74. Southeast wind 7 to 13 mph. New rainfall amounts of less than a tenth of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.
Cloud cover and drizzle/mist predicted all weekend long. We're still in an extreme drought so any rain is welcome, and the forecast is not calling for anything heavy or major so creeks will not be impacted by the rains (unfortunately!). However, the drizzly and cloudy weather will have the fish in a very good mood, and could trigger a larger olive hatch through the weekend.
The downside to the weather is the terrestrials (especially hoppers) will be a bit more sluggish. Focus more on purple and royal hippie stompers and beetles under these conditions.
Subsurface scud and pink squirrel fishing has picked up and will only get better with clouds in the sky!
Finally, we have a chance to leech over the next couple of days too thanks to the clouds.
