Good Weekend!

Good weekend both in fishing, generation and weather!  What more can you ask for in mid January?!  Friday was somewhere in the 40s, Saturday was into the mid 50s and Sunday into the 40s again.  We are expecting lower 50s today.  Unless the sun comes out, that might be a stretch.  Looks like 30s and 40s for the rest of the week with some wintery stuff scattered in here and there.  In addition to the nice weather, the generation schedule cooperated for those who wanted to wade.  After a three hour shot of water from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., it was off until Saturday morning at 6:00.  Four hours this time then off again until 6:00 p.m.  Our projection for today is on five hours from 6:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m.  A seven hour off-time is projected with it starting up about 6:00 p.m. again tonight.  It will be time to come off the water by then anyway.  “O dark hundred” and getting cool!

Reports from those who fished Friday were good.  Good numbers and nice fish.  Hitting most everything, grey and tan scuds, copper dun midges, olive and black wooly buggers.  Saturday’s reports were a little more difficult.  Catching fish, but working a little harder for them, especially depending on where you were fishing.  Up near the hatchery, we had a glowing report from one of the students in the Saturday fly tying clinic.  He called yesterday to say he had a great day on the Big Ugly that he had tied.  First time to catch something top water and on a bug he tied!  Can’t get much better!  The copper dun midge, black and olive wooly buggers and sculpin patterns were all working.  Like I said, not fast and furious, but fast enough to hold your interest.  Sunday when back to really good day on the water for most of the folks I talked to.  At the Lookout Pointe area, the size 12 scuds both in grey, and tan were working well.  Black wooly bugger was still doing well most anywhere you threw it.  Lots of nice fish!  Beautiful color on the rainbows!
