No, there were no fish seen rising, but it was a very rainy day, so I guess they could have been rising without my seeing it. I wish I could tell you the fly name, but I am not that proficient in fly fishing yet (I only use the bubble and fly method with my spinning rod). I do know that it was light tan and brown with a narrow waist, and that they are the most common fly that one sees at the stores. I was casting out about 30', and reeling in at a moderate pace. It was a great morning, but of course nobody else was nearby to be amazed at my skill.
