Wow! The wind the past two days has been brutal. Felt like we were back in Kansas! Today is cool (high will be in the low 60s) and sunny with VERY LITTLE WIND! Saturday through Tuesday looks like mid 70s to low 80s with sunshine. Light chances of rain Wednesday with increased chances by Wednesday. Temps holding in the mid 70s. Trees have turned a little more. Need a few more cool nights.
No generation in the morning hours continues to be the norm. Something coming on at 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. and staying on for 4-5 hours, then back off. Today we will not see generation until 5:00 p.m.
Busy week. Monday, Stan had Mike and his son, Steven out for half a day. Pretty good day on the rusty midge. it was pretty windy that day, but nothing like the past two days. They had planned on a full day,
but when the generators came on at 1:00, it really dirtied up in a hurry. So, it was a good half day. Gina and Jim had a group of guys, Mike, Chuck and John out for half a day. Good day for these guys too. Mike was out with Gina and he caught on the Ruby 2 and P&P midges. Chuck and John who were with Jim fished the P&P with a blood worm dropper. Carolyn had Kathi and Bill out for half a day. Pretty good day for them on the Hot Hare’s Ear, PYP and copper dun midges.
Everyone on the river again Tuesday. Thomas from Minnesota spent the morning with Stan. Slow morning for them. Very slow bite but finally brought some fish to the net as the morning went on the olive midge. Lynn and Bruce were fishing with Jim. Not going to repeat what he said about the fishing, but they too had a slow day. No best fly as they did not have very many takes. Gina had Kathi and Bill out again. They didn’t get enough fishing on Monday. Another pretty good day for them on the Ruby 2 and olive midges, and the olive JQ. Knox and Gabrielle, from Illinois, were fishing with Carolyn. It was Ruby 2 and copper dun midges most of the trip, then the holographic green crackleback when the water first came on. Gabrielle really like this kind of fishing.
Wednesday….yes, Wednesday Jim fished with Gina. Fast trip for Jim as he was on a time schedule, but
he caught fish and had fun….he always does on the ruby 2 midge. Brad and Terry fished with Jim. Pretty good day for them on the little ruby, P&P and blood worm dropper. Fished best for them when the wind put a little chop on the water as the flow is sooooo slow. Carolyn had Bob and his friend Mark on the water for the first day of their two half day fishing days. First day was okay, but not as good as they did the second day. Wednesday it was pretty much the Ruby 2 midge. Gary and Bob were also on their first day of their two half day trips with Stan. Fished pretty good for them on Wednesday on the P&P and olive midges.
Thursday, fished very good for Bob and Mark. Started out with a bang. Mark brought a beautiful 18 inch rainbow to the net and we caught several other nice fish on the black copperhead midge in the a.m. then the Ruby 2 later in the morning up until they turned on the generators. Tough day for Gary and Bob who were out with
Stan. They could hardly find a bite and it was WINDY!. Buddy and Pam fished with Jim. They had a good day on the ruby midge with a blood worm dropper.
