The Generation Projection Says What?!

Generation projection has been pretty much right on all last week.  No generation until early afternoon, then generation for two to six hours and back off until the next afternoon.  However, this weekend was a different story.  Projections for both Saturday and Sunday were no generation until 5:00 p.m. then one generator for one hour then off the balance of the day.  HO HUH?!  Saturday, generation started shortly after midnight and continued until 7:00 a.m. when it shut down until 8:00 a.m. then back on until noon when they shut it down for the balance of the day.  Today, the generators came on around 7:00 a.m. and are still on (shortly after 10:30 a.m.)  Forecasting rain chances Monday and Tuesday and scattered showers the rest of the week with temps. in the 70s to low 80s. 

Jim had two new guys on the water Thursday for a half day trip, Charles from FL, and his son, Kenneth, from WA.  It was a fairly slow day, but after going through the normal instruction on casting, line management, etc. they did catch some fish on the copper dun and the gray scud with a blood worm dropper.  Hook sets were there biggest challenge. 

Friday, Darrell had Earl and a friend, Miles, from the St. Louis area out for half a day.  Good day on the water.  They boated several fish on the Ruby midge, size 18, and the size 18 olive zebra midge. 

Earl – 9/11/09

Miles – 9/11/09

Carolyn had Art and his boss, David, out for half a day.  Art lives here in Missouri and David is from Texas.  They too had a good day using the size 18 copper dun midge dropped below the Big Ugly and the size 18 Primrose & Pearl and Ruby midges.  Caught several on the Big Ugly, but they were taking the midges best.  Also had a few stripping the holographic green crackleback.  

Rebecca & Georgia – 9/12/09

Gina had Georgie and her daughter Rebecca out for a long half day Saturday.  These ladies live just across the river from Kansas City on the Kansas side.  This was the day they started messing with the generation.  The ladies worked for their fish, but caught several on the Fl. Red San Juan worm, Primrose & Pearl size 18 midge as well as a dark brown zebra midge.  Gina’s word was ‘tough’.
