What A Difference A Day Makes!

Beautiful day yesterday.  Sun shinning, temperatures in the low 60s and a light wind.  Today is overcast and a bit nippy!  High is predicted at upper 60s, but it will need some work.  Tomorrow looks like overcast again and temperatures in the low 70s.  Chances of rain Thursday afternoon and most of Friday.  Looks like temperatures are heading to more normal as Friday and Saturday are in the mid 60s and Sunday and Monday look like mid 50s.

Other than yesterday when they turned on the equivalent of one unit at 8:00 a.m. for an hour, we have had no generation in the mornings and something coming on around 2:00 p.m. every day for a few hours.

Don’t know if it was that shot of unexpected,  not projected water they ran yesterday morning or what, but fishing yesterday was good.  Stan has a couple, Melissa and Andrew, from Indiana out for the day.  Good day for these new fly fishers, mainly on the P&P with a size 18 gray scud dropper.  I had an opportunity to get in a few hours and had fun stripping the olive filoplume on a 1.5 ips sink tip fly line.  Also caught several fish on the holographic green crackleback.  Fished with some friends for a little while and we did well on the P&P and copper dun midges.

Scuds at upper MDC ramp

A couple weeks ago when putting in my drift boat, I could not help but notice the water moving right next to the ramp.  Look at this layer of scuds!  Yesterday, when taking out at a another ramp about 5-1/2 miles downstream, almost the same layer of scuds.  We have to say our food source for the trout is definitely there and appear to be healthy.
