1.) Wow, did it feel chilly this morning...or for the day as a matter of fact. Temps this morning were reading anywhere from 38-42, with a light breeze overnight, so that frost didn't have enough time to settle. Still, it was on the cold side though. Tomorrow it will be most likely one of the chillest days we have experienced since late March. The Weather Channel is calling for an 80% chance of rain, and 54 degree temperatures here in Charlotte. Local forecasters here are still holding strong that once the rain moves in, we may drop to the upper 40's for much of the day tomorrow. The really cold stuff holds off until Tuesday-Thursday. Tuesday and Wednesday night we will be in the upper 20's and low 30's. I would bet frost will be possible those mornings. If this rain would just holdoff until Tuesday night, we would have snow, ice, or sleet falling by Wednesday morning. This Fall has been an abnormally cold one...maybe an omen of what this
Winter will look like?

2.) I'm glad that rain is on it's way...we need it!! The trout streams are extremely low, and this will change by tomorrow evening. 1-2 inches of rain is enough to substantially boost a river back up to at or above normal stages. Ofcourse, get out on the stream soon, because that water is going to immeditely start dropping after the rain stops. I would use big, gaudy streamers, and large #6-10 black stonefly nymphs. Until the water starts rising, fish the riffles and faster water, with 5-6X tippet.
