Spring Has Sprung!

Although we have not seen the first day of Spring yet, the weather certainly doesn’t  know that it is not Spring.  Nor to the trees and flowers.  Everything is blooming….almost.  No dogwood trees yet, but cherry blossoms, red buds, bartlett pears, forsythia, daffodills, and I’m certain there are others, are in full bloom.  Weather has been warn and windy.  I think this entire week has been in the upper 70s to low 80s.  So far, we have had no rain.  Temperatures through Monday look like they will be in the mid to upper 70s.  Tuesday through Thursday look like mid to upper 60s.  Depending on which forecast you look at, we have a 50% chance of showers tomorrow.  Tuesday looks like the best chance of rain, with Wednesday and Thursday another 50-50 chance. 

Generation continues to start up in the morning around 6:00-7:00 a.m. and then off at 10:00-11:00 a.m.  Projections have shown staying off until 5:00 p.m. or so, but so far this week, they have turned on something earlier and then turned on all four around 5:00 p.m.  

Monday, Darrell had Pat from Texas, out for half a day.  Tough day.  They boated a few fish on a ruby midge.  Carolyn had Trish and Mike out for a half day also.  We worked our “buns” off for the fish we caught.  It was a couple on this fly, and another on a different fly.  Not really one single more than two-fish fly.   Mike and Trish are troopers and went out with Carolyn again on Tuesday.  Did catch a few more fish this day.  Mainly on a red San Juan worm and the copper dun midge. 

Trish - 3/13/12

Okay, we’re going to give her one more chance.  Wednesday, Mike and Trish took another half day with Carolyn.  Much better day, but still not up to the normal numbers we see this time of year.  It was another red San Juan worm day, but we also caught and missed several fish on the holographic green crackleback when the water turned on early.  Also caught a few on the big red midge and a copper dun midge.  Bill and Fran from Pennsylvania took a half day float with Stan.  They caught most of their fish on the copper dun midge.  Pat decided he needed another day on the water too, so he went out with Darrell for a half day on Thursday.  Better day for them.  Lots of learning as well as fishing.  Caught fish on the blood worm and a dark olive midge.
