April 17th Fishing Report

A chance of showers and thunderstorms before 2pm, then a slight chance of showers between 2pm and 3pm. Cloudy, with a steady temperature around 55. Breezy, with a west wind 7 to 12 mph increasing to 17 to 22 mph in the afternoon. Winds could gust as high as 33 mph. Chance of precipitation is 40%. New rainfall amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.
  We received anywhere from 1/2 to 1.5 inches of rain in the area in the past 24 hours.  WIth only a couple of exceptions, this is not enough to muddy anything up or make any creeks unfishable.  Today's rains look like they will be the same.  Some valleys will get a decent rainfall, while others just a sprinkle.  This much needed moisture is soaking directly into the ground and slowly pulling us closer to the end of our moderate drought status.
  Fish are happily eating caddis, and a few olives and spring stoneflies on the surface.  Subsurface is becoming a free for all with fish eating pretty much any nymph, but seeming to favor thicker bodied bugs on cloudy days, and thin bugs with flash on sunny days.
