Snuck out here before I went down to pick up the boat between wind storms. Water was getting a little dirty before the cold front pushed through last night, so I can only assume it's cleared up a bit since last nights temperatures were at or near freezing up in town.  Did well on mostly midge patterns, but managed to get a few fish to rise to some smaller BWOS. The fishing pressure here has been off the chart, thankfully with everything else opening up for the season it should get everyone a bit more spread out.
