Another location off its game due to low water. The weeds protruding above the surface in many of the "spots" on HC are making life difficult for most.

There is very limited water to nymph in at this time- scuds, midges, crystal olive caddis larva, and birds nest patterns are good choices if you get a pocket or hole.
