Fishing Around The Rain!

Rain has been in the forecast almost every day this past week.  So days it was early in the morning, but most of the time it has waiting until late in the day.  That is the cast today.  Light showers started around 1:00 p.m. but we are expecting some heaving stuff later today.  The weekend looks pretty good.  Slight chances (20%) for showers both Saturday and Sunday with 40% presently forecast for Monday.  More of the same Tuesday and Wednesday, then we back off a little for next weekend.

No change in the generation pattern.  Low one unit more of the day.  Every afternoon they bumped it up to a full two units or even three.  Today the projection was the equivalent of one all day and so far that is what they are doing.  It is actually scheduled to be off all day Saturday except the equivalent of one unit for one hour beginning at 4:00 p.m.  The same on Sunday beginning at 5:00 p.m. and Monday looks the same the equivalent of one unit for three hours starting at 2:00 p.m.  Wow!  Let’s hope this is the case.

David and Doug, from Kansas, were on the water all day Monday with Jim.  They caught fish on the tiger tail, a pink San Juan worm under the big ruby.  Darrell’s guy, Jim, also from Kansas, was fishing the red San Juan worm.  David, from Colorado, fished the morning with Stan.  Red San Juan worm and white grub were their patterns.
