Change in The Generation Pattern

Friday saw the first change in the generation pattern since January (one exception).  Early Friday morning they turned the generators off for 4-1/2 hours.  At 5:30 a.m. they cranked all four back on until around noon when they backed off to 50 MWH.  It stayed at this flow until about 4:30 p.m. when they again cracked all four back on.  Around 10:00 p.m. last night they started shutting down and by 11:00 p.m. they were off again.  However back on this morning at 4:30.  Projection is for four generators until 2:00 p.m. when they will again cut back to the equivalent of one for 4-5 hours, then back to four.  Weather has been mild, or at least more normal.  Temperatures in the 40s and 50s with some sunshine.  Looks like we might have some rain moving in tonight, through tomorrow and possibly Monday. 

Stan on the water for a half a day Wednesday with Doug from Arizona.  Think it was in the 40s that day and know they ran water all day at a level around 707 feet.  They had a good day on the holographic green crackleback, the high water (large tungsten beadhead) holographic red midge and a pink San Juan. 

Thursday, Stan had Tony from the St. Louis area out for most of the day.  They caught lots of fish, but nothing of any size.  We have been seeing lots of the smaller fish the past couple of weeks mixed in with the little larger rainbows that are in spawn colors. 

Both Jim and Stan are on the water today.  We’ll just see how it goes today.
