Made it down here a few days ago before I had to start working on the boat and the water has cleared up since the last time I was down, and the fish are still hungry and willing to eat just about any dry I put in front of them as well as just a copper john or a prince nymph dropper. The nettles are starting to turn green, so wear pants or be itchy.
