Fished Sunday through Thursday last week.

Monday we fought the wind and only a few fish. Cornutas were plenty but few fish rising. What few fish were rising completely stopped after 6. No spinner fall.

Tuesday and Wednesday were both great days and we landed some nice fish. Had afternoon sporadic rising both days to Hendricksons and spinners. The evenings both brought spinner falls and Tuesday night was exceptional from 6pm till dark. Water was boiling. Rapid casts were the order of the night. Wed night didn't turn on until around 7 and it was not as intense as the previous night but we still did fairly well.

Thursday we fished from 7am till noon and it was dead as expected. We only managed one nice fish on the way out on a Hendrickson.

Slime was a pain in the @$$ everyday except Monday.

It has been a tough start in May..hopefully it gets better before May is over!  It is flying by so fast I'm sick with a cold....might try shots of scotch tomorrow if i have to,, this alkaselter plus is helping a little bit right now but this cold ain't fun.. yeah weather been tough but i'd say anytime from here on (without wind) is prime
