Outside In Great Weather And Fishing Too!

What a gorgeous day!  Upper 60s today, not a cloud in the sky…a little bit of wind gusts every once in a while, but otherwise perfect.  Looking for more of the same through next Thursday.  Sunny skies and temperatures in the mid 70s, up to upper 70s or low 80s. 

We are again, seeing lots of wading time.  So far, every morning, since last Sunday.  One exception was Monday when they turned it on at 4:00 a.m. and ran it almost all day.  Otherwise, we have had no generation from midnight until 1:00 p.m. or later each day.  Today, we are not supposed to get generation 7:00 p.m. and then only for one hour.  Sunday, same pattern except the one hour of generation will be at 4:00 p.m.  Monday, a little more generation starting at 3:00 p.m. 

Carolyn - 9/26/11

Carolyn had Carolyn and Dawn, from Louisiana out last Monday.  Beautiful day, weather wise, and fishing was not bad either.  We picked several fish on the primrose & pearl midge dropped under the big ruby.   This was Carolyn’s third time (hasn’t been on the water since last year) fly fishing and she was back at it like she had just fished last week.  This lady is very focused and stays tuned to what she is doing.   Carolyn had to head home early, so she hitched a ride back to shore and Dawn continued the afternoon hitting the bank with a big ugly and primrose & pearl dropper.  What a blast.  When Dawn would lay her big ugly against the bank of a likely looking place for a fish, “Bam”, fish on!  Took the dry as much as the midge.  Darrell out Monday was Dennis from Arnold, MO.  They had a good day on the primrose & pearl midge as well as the ruby. 

Tuesday, Ron and Rick, from Jasper, Texas, spend the morning with Stan.  Good day for these guys on the red San Juan worm and a black midge.  Little slow in the early a.m., but definitely picked up at the morning moved on.  Darrell had Dale and Warren from Lock Lloyd, MO. out in the morning.  These guys irritated a lot of fish on a gray size 16 scud, and primrose & pearl midge and stripping the olive filoplume. 

Monday, Wanda and Joanna, from Lockwood, MO. spent the morning with Carolyn.  Always a fun day with these two.  And, “oh happy day”. Joanna caught most of her fish on a dry fly.  She hates throwing beach balls with bugs under them.  Had a size 10 stone fly on Joanna and a big ugly with a primrose & pearl dropper on Wanda.  Wanda caught some on the big ugly, but most of her’s were on the primrose & pearl.  Beautiful day.  Wanda’s nicest was an 18″ female rainbow. 

With the generators off the past few days, lots of folks fishing and having some good days.  Lots of patterns working, gray scuds, rusty midge, ruby midge, olive wooly buggers, peach fur bug, holographic green crackleback, filoplume, pink or red micro San Juan worms, to name a few.  Better go fishing!

chad to head home early, so
