Water Up and Running

So far we have not come up too much after the rains we had Friday and Saturday.  However, there is still some runnoff, so not certain where Table Rock level will settle.  Presently it is at 916.6 feet at 5:00 p.m. today.   Forecast for tomorrow is sunny with temperatures in the 70s.  Thursday, there is a chance of showers with temps in the upper 50s.  Looks like cloudy Friday and 50s with possibility of showers again Saturday and temps in the upper 50s.  Let’s hope we don’t get too much more rain, but we are coming into the rainy season!  Two to three generators running all day with the tailwater level steady, very unusual, at 707 feet.  Projection for tomorrow is 150 mwh, which will probably keep it in the 708 feet range. 

Had three boats on the water today.  Stan was out with Gary from the Branson area.  Caught his first fish of the day within 30′ after putting in the boat.  This continued throughout the 1/2 day they were on the water.  Started out using the big ruby midge with a black size 20 midge dropper.  Also caught some on the the cerise worm as a dropper, but did best on the holographic green crackleback using an intermediate sinking line and stripping the seams.  Jim had Jerry from Kansas out again.  They had a good 1/2 day on the red midge with an orange San Juan dropper.  Working and catching a lot on the olive bug-eyed bugger in long seams.  Darrell had Houston and Raymond from Florida out part of the day,.  These two guys did well on the big red holographic midge with a white marabou tail and a red midge dropper. 

Houston – 3/23/10

Raymond – 3/23/10
