More Nice Weather!

Looks like another sunny day with temperatures in the mid 60s.  Must admit, the mornings have been a little frosty.  Chance of rain tomorrow afternoon with temperatures in the upper 50s.  After upper 50s Tuesday, we will start creeping back up in temperatures and hit upper 60s low 70s  toward the end of the week.  Pretty much sunny to partly sunny until the weekend where a slight chance of showers is showing up right now.

The generator gods were against us this weekend.  We have had generation ranging from a low one up to a low three generators running almost all day since Friday.  Brief periods very early in the morning where there was no generation, but by the time the sun came up, generation came on.  Earlier in the week, we had lots of wading time.  Hopefully, since we ran this weekend, it will be some other dam’s turn next weekend.

Fishing is still good.  Jim’s trip last Wednesday with Steve from Illinois went well.  They had two good days on the CQ size 10 streamer, and the P&P with a blood worm dropper.   Pat and Rose, from California fished with Stan.  Rose is now a new fly fisher.  She had a great time.  They did well on the ruby and P&P midges.  Nice sunny day with no generation!. 

Friday, Robin from Kansas, and Marvin from Arkansas, took a half day float with Dana.  They had a good day on the P&P midge and a size 12 beaded red San Juan worm.  The weather was so nice, Doc, from Oklahoma called and said he had to get on the water and see what the fish were doing.  He spent the day with Stan and they had a great day on the P&P and red midge. 

Saturday was an old home day for Darrell.  Two guys he knew back home in Minnesota, Mike and Doug, took a trip with him.  Good day for them on the ruby midge.  Dana had Mike and Shawn from Iowa out for half a day.  Their best patterns were the size 18 P&P, a size 12 P&P and the big ruby.  Water generating up and down all day.  Two new ladies to fly fishing, Heather and Melissa, from Oklahoma took an instructional/fishing trip with Jim.  He got them casting and catching on a red midge and a tan scud.  Mark and Greg from Kansas, had a very good day with Stan on the P&P, the red midge and an olive wooly bugger. 

Seeing pictures of some nice rainbows caught up near the outlets.  Not much in the way of browns.  As we have mentioned, we really don’t think we will see the brown run that we have in past years due to last year’s flood.
