Seeing More Browns In Hatchery Area

Trees are starting to turn, and with the nice and much needed rain we have had over the past two days, should turn even more.  Maybe a pretty Fall after all.  Temperatures in the upper 70s, low 80s into early next week.  Expecting some cooler temperatures by Tuesday, probably in the mid 60s.  No more rain for a while.

Lots and lots of wading time.  Generation pattern has been stable with no generation in the a.m., then on around 3:00 p.m. for 5-6 hours and back off.  Last weekend, we only saw a low one generator come on both Saturday and Sunday arounf 5:00 p.m. and stay on for 1-2 hours, then back off.  Might see the same trend this weekend…..remember, I said MIGHT.  We’ll see what the projection says tomorrow around 4:30 p.m.

Stan on the water Monday with Jack and Mary Kay from Texas.  We met these folks when we did a presentation to their club in Dallas last month.  Both are fly fishers and had not done much nymph fishing.  They accomplished their mission with this and caught several fish on the rusty midge in the early morning, then the primrose & pearl midge later in the morning.  Also caught several stripping the holographic green crackleback.

Valley and Julie, from Oklahoma came up after the Mountain Home Conclave and they and Carolyn went out on the “Cacklecraft” and had fun.  We threw big uglies dry, the chernoble ant (what is that supposed to look like!?), stripping holographic green cracklebacks off the shallow banks, and drifting chartreuse egg patterns with a big red San Juan worm.  Did get some hits, but no takers on a big Dolly Llama streamer.  Think this streamer was bigger than many of the fish!  We just did a bunch of fun, funky stuff and caught fish!
