Lots Of Fishing Past Two Days!

Looks like the temperatures are creeping up and still some chances of showers over the next few days.  Monday through Wednesday, we are seeing chances of showers with temperatures in the low 90s.  By Thursday, partly sunny to sunny on Friday and temperatues moving into the mid 90s.  July is quickly approaching.

Table Rock now sits at 923.8 feet.  Generating four generators during the bulk of each day.  Generation generally off at midnight and staying off until 6:00 a.m. or, a couple mornings, as late as 8:00 a.m.

In case you have not been fishing here for a while, since the flood and all the high water we had in all the rivers and creeks which feed into Table Rock Lake, the water has been dirty.  It’s either a milky brown color or ucky green color.  You can maybe see the bottom in some areas that are 2-3 feet, but it certainly is not a good clear look.  When they fire up all four generators, seems like it gets even worse.

A lot of boats on the water Friday and Saturday.  Jim out with Alec and Jim,  from Manchester, MO. on Friday.  This is an annual event for the two of them.  Had a good day on the black bug-eyed bugger, size 6, the red midge and a pink San Juan worm.  Scott and his son, Mitch, spent the morning floating with Stan.  Mitch was only 7 or 8 the first time he fished with us.  He is now 12 and throwing a pretty good rod, but best of all, he’s hooking, playing and bringing landing those fish really good now.  Their best patterns were the red midge, an olive wooly bugger and a cerise San Juan worm.   And now, for the rest of the story…..the Louisiana Kerrs were in town.  Darrell took Albert and James Albert.  They quietly had a good day on the red San Juan worm.  Hidden away in the trees along the bank you could hear cackling, hoots and hollers.  Carolyn had Dawn and Gina in her boat all day.   Gina dubbed them “Triple Trouble”.  Fun day on lots of stuff.  Never stuck with anything long enough to say something was consistent, but seemed nothing was consistent.  You either needed to change flies after three or four fish, or change location.  Caught fish on the 56er stripping under sinking leader, black bugger, olive floozie (of course), cerise San Juan, red San Juan, egg patterns, red midge, Eggi Juan Kenobi.  Think the only thing we threw that did not even get a hit was a white wooly bugger.

Saturday, Jim had Cooper and his uncle, Tom, out for half a day.  Pretty good day on the red midge, pink and red San Juan worms, and the black bug-eye.  Tom is pretty new, so Jim worked with him on all the skills.  Jim calls the water “skunky water”.  Stan had Kelton and James, from Oklahoma out for half a day.  They had a good day on the red and cerise San Juan worms and an olive wooly bugger.  Last, but not least, Gina took Valley and her daughter, Dalley, out for the day.  This was Dalley’s birthday trip.  More cackling and carrying on with the cerise and red San Juan worms, a “Valley egg”, and an orange San Juan.  Fish were spotty, but they kept moving, caught fish, had a couple of dubles and lots of fun.   By the way, these two ladies are from Oklahoma.

Dalley & Valley - 6/25/11
