Yes….It is Raining!

Rain started here last last night and it is still raining.  Supposed to rain most of today, but tomorrow looks like it will be a lovely day.  Chance of some scattered showers Saturday, but after that the weather looks wonderful again.  At least for a while.  Generators are off today, as projected.  It will be interesting to see what tomorrow will bring as Table Rock Lake has come up 4/10s of a foot since midnight.   At 11:40 a.m. Table Rock is 915.0.  Break time in between finishing this and they did turn on two generators this afternoon.

Stan on the water Wednesday morning with Chuck from northern Missouri and his friend Sarah.  Sarah is originally from Washington and has been flying a helicopter locally.  Thanks to Chuck she found a bigger and better job in Oregon, so she will soon be moving closer to home.  She said she could see all the people fishing on the river when she would fly over in the helicopter, so Chuck brought her along to try it.   Think she liked it.  their best patterns were the big ruby with the size 18 ruby dropper.  Gina also on the water for half a day.  She took Ricky and Lisa from Tennessee out to teach them how to fly fish and catch a few fish.  They hope to fish in some of their waters at home.  They worked on all the basics and hooked, missed and brought in some fish.  Best patterns were the big ruby, size 18 ruby and the red tungsten beadhead midge.   Looks like they got off to a good start with their fly fishing!

Lisa – 9/8/10

Ricky – 9/8/10

Darrell and Dana had a group of guys from Tennessee and here in the Missouri out all day.  They barely made it in before the rain hit.  Darrell had Todd and Jim.  Believe they have fly fished before.  Their best patterns were the pink San Juan worm and the holographic green crackleback.  Dana’s guys, Phil and Junior caught fish on a red San Juan worm and the red midge.  A fun and fishy day was had by all.


 Junior – 9/8/10

 Phil – 9/8/10

For those who were brave enough to be fishing in the rain today, I heard from several of our customers that fishing was great.  Ruby midge, olive wooly bugger, gray scuds, San Juan worms, just to name a few of the patterns they were catching on.  One of the guys even caught a nice bass on an olive wooly bugger.
