Another decent week, especially for bank anglers. Boats are taking fish but with a still cool water temperature many fish are where the food is, in the margins. I would think the boat buzzer fishing will really switch on sometime within the next week or two.
When the mainly cold wind drops there are good hatches of small buzzers. Nymphs caught as many fish as lures last week.
The majority of fish continue to be taken 3 – 5 foot down with only a few rises.
