I had time for a quick trip out of town to try for a few rainbow trout. I didn't find any fish but there was a massive cloud of tiny mayflies coming off the water along with adult damselflies and midges seemingly everywhere. The fish were not in working the shore and as a result I could simply watch the few that were feeding sporadically in the deep water. It is amazing how green things are around here still but it is due to all the water we have been getting from daily thunderstorms. I barely skirted the storms as they moved through tonight. I was far enough north to be spared while at the lake. The sun, low in the west, did a great job undercutting the storm clouds and lighting up the landscape below the dark clouds.
