Good Day on the Water

Still generating 24/7.  However, as I mentioned yesterday, we are seeing a change in the generation pattern.  Better yet, it was pretty much right on with the projection you get from the www.swpa.gov site.  And, we seem to be following the projection again today.  They were running four generators at 8:00 a.m. this morning and the tailwater level was somewhere in the 710 foot range.  It has cut back to two generators with and range around 706.  If they completely follow the projection, it should drop even lower after 1:00 p.m.

Jim on the water yesterday for a half day float starting at noon.  He had a couple fishers from the Kansas City area, Ryan and E.J.  They worked on nymphing techniques and caught fish on the red midge, orange San Juan and for streamer work, olive buggers.  Stan went out for a late -start half day also.  He and Ken, from Kansas, hit the water around 11:00 a.m.  They had a very good day on the red holographic midge and a cerise San Juan worm.  Also caught several on the holographic green crackleback.  Had a little trouble hooking the fish on the crackleback, but that’s another story.  Seems Ken’s blind guide had put a crackleback on without a point on the hook.  Once this was remedied, Ken started hooking them!  Oh well, we have our days too.
