    I hate to see the summer end.

    We are fortunate as sportsmen to be outdoors and have the ability to notice subtle changes.

    Last weekend I noticed that leaves and fir needles collected on my car as I was out fishing.

    Yesterday I had more fir needles on my car after a full afternoon/evening of fishing.

    Dew started showing up on the windshield within the past 3 days.

    Summer is fading. Fall is scooting in.

    30 minutes ago I saw an October caddis on the SF Snoqualmie. That was surprising.

    It is still summer here. It's supposed to get to 85 today. The average temps this summer have been above 85 all summer long.

    But I have noticed the Aspens starting to turn colors and the grass in the rivers is starting to die. But one can't see much with all the smoke in the air from the fires. But some of the bigger ones are starting to go away. But with all the hot weather that we have had the Skinny water is skinnier than ever.

    And now that all my ailments are gone I can get back to fishing. But I have one more stupid trip to make and I can concentrate on fishing the rest of the year.
