Catch Up!

Water conditions have been very favorable for wade fishers!  They have not run generators since last Saturday except for two hours Tuesday when they ran two for two hours.  This morning they turned on one generator and ramped it up to two at 8:00 a.m.  It is supposed to shut down at 9:00 a.m. for the remainder of the daylight hours.

Jim had Jerry and Keri from Kansas on the water Monday and Tuesday.  Keri is that cute little gal who caught the nice Rainbow last July during the extremely high water conditions.  She has become quite the fly fisher!  They had a couple good outtings with Jim on the black midge and blood worm dropper. 

Tuesday Stan had Doc Louis out.  Doc is a Pediatrician from Texas.  Loved our fishery and the broccoli salad!  They boated lots of fish on the holographic green crackleback and the P&P midge. 

Wednesday was almost a full house.  Lots of boats out.  Carolyn had Kim and Matthew from Oklahoma out.  Kim is a pretty new fly fisher and Matthew has been fishing for quite some time.  Throws a nice line.  Put Matthew on the fish with the filoplume and sink tip and Kim and I tried to find a midge they would take.  No luck, so we eventurlly got her into fish on the sink tip and filoplume too.  They had four doubles!  Matthew caught a few on a size 20 BWO soft hackle as well as the holographic green crackleback.  Hopefully we have Kim hooked. 

Dana a couple Kansas guys out, Spencer and Uncle Ron.  They "smoked" them all day on the copper dun, rusty and olive midges.  Spencer caught his first brown.  Both were complaining? about being worn out when they got back to the shop!

Stan had Phil, also from Kansas, out all day.  Phil normally swings a golf club but decided to swing a fly rod yesterday and probably considers it a ‘hole in one’ day.  Good day on the olive filoplume in the morning then switched to the P&P and black midges after lunch. 

Chris and his wife Dana spent half a day on the water with Jim.  This is the fourth time these Tennessee folks have been out with Jim.  They enjoyed the lovely day catching fish on the black midge with a blood worm dropper.
