And The Rain Came!

And the rain came, and Table Rock Lake went up almost 1/2 a foot in a couple days.  A few scattered showers today, but we are expecting no rain, for at least a couple more days and temperatures into the 70s.  Best chance for rain looks like Sunday, but it will still be in the 70s.  A little cool down early next week, probably due to the chance of rain coming in Sunday.  Temperatures could drop to the low 60s by Monday.

Quite a bit heavier water flows yesterday and again today.  I just have a feeling we are going to see these heavier flows for a few days in order to get Table Rock Lake back to or below power pool.

Jim was out with Jimmie and his friend, Joe, from Florida.  They all had a good day stripping a size 12 CQ streamer or a size 12 holographic green crackleback….of course on a sinking line.  They also did well drifting a size 18 black midge.
