It would be utter bullshit to say we've been seeing it coming. The signs have not been there. In fact it's been the opposite. But finally it showed up. The caddis are disturbed by my lawnmower, but the river is now brown enough for them to not be noticed as they land on the outside bend just beyond my fence.. The window of warm and clear has gone, and we now have warm and high and dirty. But that too will soon change. Clear would never describe it, more like clear-enough. Clear enough for the fish to tip up, as the sun dips down, and provide those rings that we all look for. Soon.
