Was down here today on a trip and it was pretty good til about noon. Water temps are prime right around 62 degrees. Didn't see many fish rising, but there were several hatches before noon. Tricos were all over when I got there, and they were eating the drowned spinners around 8am til about 9. After that I saw lots of bigger PMDs til about 10 or 10:30, and around 11:30 the BWOs were going all out but I only saw a handful of fish rise for them. Yellow sallys were pretty much gone, but I did see a few crane flies. By around 12:30 the wind came up and temps were nearing 90 degrees outside. Saw some caddis around, but that's definitely more of an afternoon and evening hatch this time of year.
