Scattered showers and thunderstorms before 1pm, then isolated showers and thunderstorms after 4pm. Some of the storms could produce heavy rain. Partly sunny, with a high near 84. West wind 3 to 5 mph. Chance of precipitation is 50%. New rainfall amounts of less than a tenth of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.
We're looking at a chance of storms all week long. This is a double edged sword as the rains are keeping things cooler, and the stain is definitely helping with fishing on sunny days, however the ground is saturated and enough heavy rain will cause things to muddy up quite a bit, When the rains come, spend some extra windshield time as certain valleys tend to clear quickly even after heavy rains.
Yesterday and this morning's rains were heavier south and east of the shop (Fennimore area got pounded again!) so head north and you have a better chance of finding fishable and clear water.
In the murky water, black leeches, San Juan worms and squirmy wormies work quite well. On stained water, scuds are your best friend as are other larger bead head nymphs. When things clear up, an indicator dry (hippie stomper, training wheel, unsinkabeetle) with a bead head below will catch fish.
Hatches are spotty and sporadic. There are still some caddis and light colored mayflies around, and midges are becoming a popular menu item for trout recently too.
