Darn Those Generators!

Upper 70s and clouds moving in and out today.  Tomorrow it looks like a 70% chance for rain with temperatures in the lower 70s.  That trend seems to be running through Wednesday of next week.  By Thursday, the chances for showers drop dramatically (20%) with temperatures in the mid 70s.  Friday through the weekend are great!  Upper 70s Friday and mid 80s Saturday and Sunday.  Time to hit the water!

Not sure what to say about the generation.  Yesterday, and again today, they had no generation until 10:00 a.m. when they turned on one unit.  That is scheduled to remain on until 8:00 p.m.  However, yesterday they cut it way back around 4:00 p.m. then shut it off at 9:00 p.m.  Monday they are projecting two units on for three hours beginning at 7:00 a.m. then off until 6:00 p.m.

water was going up and down, but they pulled off another very good day.

Both Friday and Saturday, Carolyn had JP and his father, George on the water for half a day.  Friday, one unit was running all day.  With the water being stable all day, it certainly fished well for us.  We floated the boat ramp bank several times with great results.  Several 16″ to 19″ healthy, fat rainbows.  Saturday, we got on the water before the generator started.  It was a hoot.  Since the water was off, we found a good looking spot and got out of the boat.  Good water for streamers,

so JP was stripping the tiger tail with a filoplume as a second fly.  At one time, he hooked up with a fish on both flies at one time!  George was just a little

below him stripping the holographic green crackleback and catching as many or more, but with only one fly, he never got a double!  Another fun day until the horn blew.  After that, it was over an hour before we finally picked up a few more fish.  Dana had Brent and his wife, Jackie on the water for what was to have been a full day.  This was their first time with a fly rod and Jackie caught her first brown and a nice 17 inch rainbow.  She is hooked!  Unfortunately, after the water came on and fishing turned south, Dana decided it best to have lunch and call it a day.  If they had not turned on the generator, it would have been an outstanding day!
