October 5th Fishing Report

Sunny, with a high near 62. Breezy, with a south wind 8 to 13 mph increasing to 18 to 23 mph in the afternoon. Winds could gust as high as 32 mph.
Breezy day today blowing in a warmer high pressure system.  While this might slow down the olive hatch a bit (we still have a good chance of seeing them in the late afternoon and evening), it will bring the terrestrial and foam bite back on track!
  It still isn't worth getting up early if the night time temperatures are below 40.  Sleep an extra hour, have an extra cup of coffee then head out and fish.  When the water temperature climbs a degree or two, the fishing picks up.
  Nymphing in the morning is the way to go.  Either tight line, under an indicator, or below a hippie stomper.   Focus more heavily on a dropper below a terrestrial mid day as once the ground warms up and the dew disappears ants, beetles, and hoppers will become active.
  Watch for the olive hatch in the later afternoon and evening.  It could be a bit lesser and the fish a bit more hesitant to rise in the bright sun, but still make sure you have some olives in your fly box!
