Feels Like Spring and OMG!

We have seen 60s the past three days.  Lots of sunshine, and, unfortunately, yesterday and the day before, lots of wind.  However, today is a picture perfect day.   No wind and lots of sunshine.  I know lots of fishers were here on Taneycomo enjoying these days and hope you got to do the same somewhere.  Good weather expected into next weekend.  Upper 40s with a few mid 50s in the forecast.  No chances of moisture except for tomorrow where they are predicting 50% chance of showers in the afternoon.

Generators off all weekend.  Ran some this morning but turned it off by 10:00 a.m.  Supposed to be off until 5:00 this afternoon.  Projection says off tomorrow until 5:00 p.m.  That one we’ll just have to wait and see.  Maybe we’re back into the off during most of the day routine for a while.  We can hope.

Sheila - 1/18/15

Sheila – 1/18/15

On the water yesterday afternoon with Jerry and Sheila, who are from the area.   Started out a little slow.  Jerry went through a hit and miss phase (he hasn’t been fishing for a while) for the first hour.  Once we got the kinks out, we started hooking fish on the holographic green crackleback and JQ streamer on the 1.5 or 2.6 ips sinking leader or line.  When the fish decided they were through with these, we moved and hooked a few on an egg pattern.  Wind was terrible!  30 mph almost steady gust at times.  As the afternoon moved on and the wind died down a little, it turned into an OMG! day.  There was a period, probably the last 45 minutes to hour of our day, when you had a hit or miss on every drift.  If you did not, it was because your fly was missing!  The last fish of the day were an nice, fat 16″ rainbow for Jerry and an 17″ rainbow for Sheila.  What a day to finish the day!
