Same Old, Same Old!

So far this week, we have seen generation most of each day.  Monday it came on at 5:00 a.m. and did not go off until Tuesday evening at 10:00 p.m.  Back on Wednesday at 6:00 a.m. and only off for less than an hour around 9:00 a.m.  Projection is for some level of generation all day today.  The rain we had over night raised Table Rock  by 2/10s of a foot since midnight.  Good news is the sun should be out all weekend.  Let’s hope the generators give us a break!

Three boats on the water Tuesday.  The generation flow was a bit erratic that day and they had to look and work for their fish.  Darrell had Earl from the St. Louis area out for half a day.  Earl had a good time and caught some fish on the crackleback and black midge.  Stan was with Sam from Idaho.  This guys fishes a lot and all over the place.  Their best patterns were an olive wooly under a sink tip, and red and black midges.  Jim was out with Al from Arkansas.  Al is fairly new at fly fishing so they work on techniques and casting.  Did catch some fish on the red midge, orange San Juan and a black/brown bugger.

Wednesday was more of the same generation wise and fishing.  Stan and Dana had two brothers, Brian and Chuck, and Brian’s son, Dustin, out all day.  These guys come here from Minnesota at least once a year and have been for several years.  Dustin caught his first Taneycomo trout on a fly rod this time (which he did not want to touch).   Best patterns were the red midge, red or pink San Juan dropper, the ruby midge and one of Brian’s red midges.
