Well – They Did It!

Friday schedule from SWPA said they were going to have the water off from midnight until 6:00 a.m. then on until 11:00 a.m. or noon; off until 5:00 p.m. and back on until 11:00 p.m.  Within an hour either way, that is what they did!  Best news is that is what they are projecting for today.  Think we will see more wading time again today! 

Had a couple boats on the water yesterday.  Lots of hits on almost everything but the wind was a devil!  First it would blow upstream, the cross strea, and eventually down stream.   Didn’t know which way it wanted to blow.  We fished the filoplume with a sink tip line at the lookout island when the water went down and hooked and missed a lot of fish.  On our way out with no current, you could see fish suspended on the high side below lookout island.  The Big Ugly with a #18 burgundy midge dropped anywhere from 8 inches to 14 inches was picking fish there.   Red midge with the red San Juan dropper worked drifting, but the gray scud seemed to worked better after the water shut down.
