High Water, But Fishing Goes On!

Rained off and on most of today, Monday).  Should be in the 70s or low 80s through the weekend.  Chances of rain Sunday p.m. into Monday which will take temperatures into the 60s next week. 

Am I sounding like a broken record?  We will see two units all day tomorrow.  At least that’s down from the three units we have experienced the past several days. 

Lots of fishing this past weekend.  Stan on the water Saturday with Jim and Jim, from Kansas.  Bet that was a confusing day.  Good day for them on the big ruby with the size 16 red midge dropper.  It was another guys and gals day Saturday.  Darrell took the guys, Gary and Gary, and Jim had the gals, Judy and Cheryl.  CQ streamer, red midge, black midge and P&P midge were the patterns for them.  New fly fishers from Texas, Jim and Mary, spent half a day with Dana.  Red midge, black midge and red San Juan worm worked for them.  

Mark and his father, Mike spent Sunday morning with Stan.  They also went out again with him on Monday.  Good two days for these guys on the big ruby, red midge and stripping green crackleback under a 5.6 ips sinking

Monday, Jim took Jeff and his son, Matt out for a great day of instruction.  Matt just turned 18 and he has a great life ahead of him enjoying the wonderful art of fly fishing.  Good day for these guys on the CQ streamer and the red midge.  Carolyn finished the second day of instructional/fishing with Scott and his brother, Mark.  Fun guys to fish with.  Wanted to give them the opportunity to learn various presentation techniques.  With the heavy water running at Taneycomo, decided to go to Roaring River.  There they had the opportunity to work emergers, nymph style fish, dry fly and pull steamers.  Mark caught his first fish on a fly rod using a beadhead soft hackle.  What a way to start your fishing experience.   I think Scott caught his first fish on a P&P midge.
