Saturday they turned the water off at midnight and left it off until 2:00 a.m. Sunday.  Sunday night, again at midnight and on at 6:00 a.m. Monday.  Monday they ramped it up about every four hours.  Monday night it was off at 11:00 p.m. and back on yesterday morning 11:00 a.m.!  Again last night they turned it off a little before midnight and projection today it that it will come on at 1:00 p.m.  Anyway, what we arer seeing is a more normal summer time generation pattern.  Is that light we see at the end of the tunnel?!?!

Yesterday fished great.  Jim had Ted and Janis from Arkansas on the river.  They are brand new fly fishers and had a wonderful time.  Jim worked with them on casting, line management, hook setting and playing fish.  They caught on quickly and caught fish.  Best flies were the Miracle Scud, size 14 (that’s a back to normaly fly) and the size 18 copper dun midge.  Stan was out with Dick from Florida.  They caught lots of fish on the Big Ugly with a black zebra dropper.  Fish were hitting both flies.  When the water came on, they used the red midge and red San Juan to fish the rise.  Got into some dry fly fishing which Dick really liked. 

Had some of our customers come into the shop after the water turned on.  They had had an awesome day stripping small, olive wooly buggers at the Rockin Chair area.
