Forecasting Beautiful Weather!

Yes, it’s the same old…same old story.  Running generators 24/7 with a tailwater level on Taneycomo of 710.5 plus or minus.  Table Rock is dropping and is currently at 917.4…YEAH!  However, the other lakes ae still rising or unchanged.  Beaver is holding at 1129.2 and Bull Shoals is at 668.4 (flood pool 695.00…they have some room).  Good news is that we seem to have several days ahead of us with no rain in the forecast!  Haven’t heard those words for weeks it seems like.

Stan on the water Friday with a gentleman from Florida, Howard.  He and his wife plan to spent one or two week in the area and he wanted to get in a little fly fishing.  He had a good half day using a size 12 gold beadhead olive wooly bugger and the size 16 red tungsten beadhead midge.  He said he might try it again if they do stay around for a while.

Jim was out Friday with some Missouri guys, Alec and Jim.  They spent a good part of the day throwing sink tip lines with #6 Bug-Eyed sculpin pattern and "turned a lot of fish".  Caught several too!  They also used the red midge with a pink San Juan dropper.  The guys have their own boat here so when they got back from the trip, they loaded up on bugs and were going to try it on their own Saturday.  Hope they had a good day.

Darrelll out Saturday with Malcomb and Dan from the St. Louis area.  Had a good day but had to move around alot and try lots of different patterns.  Said it was one of those "catch a few fish here on a pattern, change or move and catch a few more".  The olive filoplume, red midge and black zebra midge were their best patterns of the day.
