Another Day In Paradise!

This weather has been absolutely wonderful!  Mornings are crisp, in the upper 40s or low 50s; the days are in the upper 70s to low 80s, and lots of sunshine.  By Monday of next week, looks like we will creep back into the upper 80s or low 90s.  See some chances of showers toward the end of next week, but we know how that goes…maybe so, maybe not.

Generation schedule….lots of wading time.  They are still pretty  “right on” with the schedule, so people wading.

Sunday, Dave and his son Jefferson, from Oklahoma, spend the morning learning how to fly fish with Jim.  Their best pattern was the varigated gold sculpin pulled very slowly.  They also caught a few on the blood worm.  Meanwhile, Stan had Trahy and his wife Beth, from Kansas out for half a day.  They had a pretty good morning on the rusty midge, and, when the water came on, the red San Juan worm. 

Fishing is spotty.  Find the right spot and you’ll pull several fish, so keep moving if you are not catching.  Depending on the day, either the golden variant sculpin or the charcoal gray sculpin have been working.  Several mornings, even with the sun out, the black zebra has been the one to go to.  Don’t forget the filoplume.  I fished for a while Monday and this was the best pattern for me, in certain places, using the sinking leader.  As the sun got higher in the sky, the primrose & pearl with a bloodworm dropper was the ticket.  However, takes were very, very soft.  With the wind blowing, it was a challenge to know when you had a hit!
