Fishing is Good!

Weather has been pretty nice except for the wind.  Yesterday wasn’t too bad, but it looks pretty windy today.  Probably feels good with the 80 degree temperatures.  Thunder boomers woke me early this morning, but by 6:30 a.m. they were gone and the clouds rapidly disappearing.  We are expecting 80s again tomorrow, but the possibility of some nasty storms.  Monday will be partly sunny and mid 60s.  Tuesday low 70s and sunny with Wednesday showing partly sunny and temps again in the low 70s.  Thursday and Friday are looking cooler, 50-60s and the possibililty of rain again.  Think that was last weeks long-range forecast and it realy did not materialize. 

Generation has been pretty much as projected.  Last Monday, it came on for a little over an hour at 8:00 p.m. We have seen constant generation Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, anywhere from a low one generaot to a high two.  The exception was yesterday when they had it off until 4:00 p.m. (as projected) and when they turned it on, they cranked three generators.  Back off at 10:00 p.m. and it is off today.  We expect to see generation at 7:00 p.m. today.  Sunday is showing no generation all day, and Monday is not showing any generation until 6:00 p.m.

Stan out all day Thursday with Robert, from Illinos.  Robert tries to fish with us at least once a year.  He had a wonderful day using the size 16 red midge, size 18 primrose & pearl midge and stripping the holographic green crackleback. 

Yesterday, Stan, Dana and Carolyn had a annual group out all day.  Stan had two  fairly new to fly fishing guys, Dan and Randy out.  They had a very good day using the size 18 rusty midge in the morning, then switched to the

size 18 rubyand  primrose & pearl midges in the afternoon  as well as stripping the primrose & pearl soft hackle.  Carolyn has JP and Mark out for the day  This was marks third trip and JP’s first.  After a few casting lessons for JP, it was off to catching fish.  We had a very good day on the size 18 ruby and primrose & pearl midges.  Later in the morning and for the balance of the trip almost (until they fired up the three generators), it was a size 18 olive midge.  JP started off his fly fishing esperience with a nice 15-16 inch rainbow.  Lots of

nice fish, but also lots of smaller fish.  Wish these guys would hurry up and grow up!  JP even hooked and landed a few stripping the holographic green crackleback.  Good casting practice.  Meanwhile, Dana, who had Rich on the water all day, were catching fish, also on the ruby and primrose & pearl midges.
