A+ For Fishing Right Now

What can I say about the weather.  Looks good all the way through Friday.  Chance of some clouds moving in Thursday, but mostly sunny and temperatures in the upper 70s to low 80s.

Generation off again today.  Heard the horn go off around 4:00 p.m.  Projection was for one generator at 4:00 p.m. for one hour.  Projection for tomorrow is no generation until 3:00 p.m. when two generators will come on and probably ramp up to a low three generators until about 11:00 p.m.  We will just have to wait and see what this week holds as far as generation pattern.  Probably off in the mornings and something in the afternoons for a while.  Will keep you posted.

Fishing has been very good the past two days.  Darrell out yesterday with Scott and his friend,Lonnie.  These two crazy guys are from the St. Joseph, Missouri area.  Scott complaining that he could not work on his casting because he was hooking fish all the time.  Best patterns were the primrose & pearl or ruby midges, and a ginger scud.  Kent and “Doc” from Independence, Missouri, were out all day with Stan.  He worn them out with a size 18 white midge and the primrose & pearl.  The first time Buddy and Pam fly fished, it was with Jim in 2004.  They spent the day with him catching fish on the black and rusty midges, blood worm dropper, or stripping the bug-eye jailhouse sculpin.  Good day on the water!  Meanwhile, Carolyn was teaching Tim and Kathy the fine art of fly fishing. First the roll cast, then the pick up and lay down cast, and finally they earned their fly and started catching fish on the primrose & pearl midge.  Before we left the water, Tim was pulling in fish stripping the holographic green crackleback just under the surface.  I think we have a couple of new fly fishers on the stream.  Tim and Kathy are from Joplin, Missouri. 

Today, Jim and Darrell, had a group of guys out for a long half day.  Jim took Darin and Chris, and Darrell had Mitchel and Jade.  Lots of fish for both boats on black zebra, primrose & pearl, ruby and brown midges, blood worm and size 12 bug eye-bugger.
