September 26th Fishing ReportMostly sunny, with a high near 59. Breezy, with a northwest wind 7 to 17 mph, with gusts as high as 28 mph.
Conditions are perfect for fall! Cool temperatures, olive hatches in the late afternoon and evening, and the terrestrial bite still going stong.
The wind yesterday and again today is the only major negative! Fish a shorter, stouter leader to help you get through the wind.
Creeks are clear and a bit low with excellent temperatures. Terrestrials are still key, especially the black training wheel right now.
Olives are hatching, but not in the numbers we like. Sporadic olives area wide, they seem to be hatching a bit closer to last light, but some creeks are getting them in the afternoon too. Just be prepared with a few klinkhammers or parachutes.
In these windy conditions, do not overlook leeches. If casting becomes frustrating, tie on a black leech! It doesn't matter as much how or where a leech or streamer lands and fish will chase it regardless of drag.
