It’s Starting To Look A Lot Like Christmas!

What weather we have had!  However, the weather decided it was time to look like it’s supposed to.  We had a light dusting of snow on the trees and ground yesterday morning and this morning, it is 31 degrees!  Looks like low 40s and mid to upper 30s for next week.  Always fish on New Year’s Day and right now, it is looking like upper 20s.  Oh well, we’ve fished that and colder before!

Generation is still running spastic.  Three units on in the morning for 3-4 hours, then down to two, eventually a full or low one unit then back up around 5:00 p.m.

This past Wednesday was one of those nice days (temperature in the 60s) but the water was crazy.  Wednesday Jim spent the day with Gina.  They started out in the morning with the heavy water.  Fishing was tough with the high water and especially in the lower areas.  Gina noticed it was falling out, so row down to the take out, get the boat loaded, drive back up to the put in and fish the upper area with the water lower.  Bingo, fishing was certainly better up there and during the afternoon on the ruby 2 and stripping the tiger tail.  Merry Christmas Jim!

Thursday, Jep and his son Cam spent the afternoon on the water with Stan.  Heavy water when they started, but dropped out during the trip.  Not a great day on the water, but certainly not bad.  This was Cam’s first experience with a fly rod, so he learned the roll cast, worked on the pick up and lay down cast, as well as line management.  They caught fish on the ruby 2 under an orange egg pattern.

FROM ALL OF US AT RIVER RUN OUTFITTERS, WE WISH YOU AND YOURS A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!
