Thanksgiving Day!

Temperatures today are very nice, however, the wind is not.  Pretty windy and gusty today.  Last I heard, Monday might be in the low 70s, however about a 40% chance of showers Monday.  Generation every day, all day since Wednesday and scheduled to do the same today and tomorrow.  However, the level has been low enough so there are wading opportunities in certain areas.

We will be closed Thanksgiving Day.  However, we will be open the day after Thanksgiving.  Come on in and check out the Orvis Reel Deal.  Again this year, we can give you a choice of certain Orvis reels free with the purchase of a Helios or Hydros rod!  Just in time for Christmas shopping!

Stan on the water Friday with Todd and Brian.  Todd is from Ozark and I believe Brian was from Illinois (not certain).  They had a good day even with a late start.  This was Brian’s first fly fishing trip.  He was happy to have caught his first trout on a fly rod and very happy with the size of the fish they caught.  Best patterns were a red San Juan, red and black midges.  This one is for you Stan from Chicago.  While waiting for them to come off the water ( I took the trailer around to meet them at the take out), I noticed the fish coming up everywhere in the shallow water around the boat ramp.  The only rod I could find in the car was a 4 wt. 7’6″ Trout Bum with a big ugly fly.  Beggars can’t be choosie, so to the water I went with this rig and plop!  About the 3rd or 4th cast, a nice rainbow took my big ugly.   Think it could have been a great dry fly evening had I had a smaller pattern.

Saturday, Troy and Dave from Warrensburg took a half day with Stan.  They had two generators, then one running while they were out.  Again, nice quality fish on the red San Juan and copper dun midge.    Pretty windy on Saturday.
