Chances For Rain By Next Thursday

It is feeling a whole lot like summer.  Temperatures have been in the mid to upper 80s the past several days and we see more of the same for next week with some 90s scattered in for good measure.  Best chance for rain shows up next Thursday into Friday.  Little ways off….we’ll see.

No change in generation.  Four units still 24/7.  We are still eight feet above normal power pool for this time of the year.  The tailwater level is +/- 708′.

Trips out last Wednesday.  Jim took a fairly new fly fisher from the Branson area out and gave him lots of good instruction.  They had a very good day stripping the tiger tail and nymphing the red midge and/or hot hare’s ear nymph.  James took Clint from Colorado out for half a day.  Clint fished a lot when he lived in Colorado but never as many as they caught Wednesday.  It was the big ruby with the lightning bug dropper for them.

Friday, Stan was out with Jim, who is also a fairly new fly fisher.  He wanted to expand his knowledge of fly fishing and catch some fish!  Mission accomplished.  Jim had a good day on the big ruby with the lightning bug dropper, and stripping the holographic green crackleback.  Had so much fun he is out again today.  Jim had his regular, regular, David out for half a day.  Very good day for them.  Nice 22″ brown stripping the tiger tail.  Also caught several fish on the ruby midge and the hot hare’s ear nymph.
