First Day After Shutting Down The Gates

Hot is the theme today.  At noon it is 88 degrees and climbing.  After today, we are looking at 80s through the week and back into the 90s for the weekend.  The other equation is 50% chances of rain almost every day through Wednesday.  Look at the bright side…..50% chances for no rain!  Rain, if we get it tomorrow, should wait until the afternoon.

Making the adjustments to no flood gates.  Water has been off each morning since the gates shut down.  The first full day it was off, they turned on two units around 8:00 a.m.   Yesterday it was 8:00 a.m. and today it was 10:00 a.m.

Gina’s Wednesday regular, Jim, wanted to do something different for a change, so they went to a lake in Arkansas and fished all day on a 3 weight rod for bluegill and green sunfish.  How about this nice one?
