Lots Of Fishing Goin’ On!

Looks like a few days of dry weather.  Today should be in the upper 60s but cloudy.  Friday into Tuesday it will be sunny or partly sunny and temperatures in the upper 70s.  Yeah!  Rain might be sneaking into the picture on Wednesday…best chances right now look like Thursday.

We had some low generation this past Sunday.  Monday was high for a few hours in the morning then dropped it back until 4:00 that afternoon.  Tuesday and Wednesday the level and flows were basically high and up and down all day.  Unfortunately, today looks about the same although they are projecting 100 mwh.  Not certain what they are doing.

Lots of stuff has been going on since the last fishing report.  Mainly the women’s gathering we held here at the shop this last Saturday.  What a Day!  More on it to follow.  Now to get the fishing reports caught up.

James on the water with Bob and Steve from the St. Louis area a week ago this past Monday.  Good day for these guys on the lightning bug under the big ruby.

Thursday, Colby and Cory went out with Stan again.  This is the fourth time this couple has fish with us about this same time of the year.  Good day for them on the ruby 2 midge under the big ruby.

Kevin – 4/20/18

Kevin and his son, Phil fish with Carolyn Friday.  Kevin and Carolyn worked together at Bayer Animal Health in Shawnee, Kansas for

Phil – 4/20/18

several years  Good time not only fishing, but catching up on what’s happening as well as “remember when?”  Best pattern was the ruby 2, of course, and a few stripping the olive filoplume trailing a tiger tail on a 3 ips sinking leader.

James took Kevin and Phil out on Saturday since Carolyn was helping to entertain 50 plus ladies.  Another good day on the ruby 2 under the big ruby.  Stan was with another long-time customer John and his brother Leo.  John started fishing with Stan in 2006 and just recently built a new home and is now living in the area.  They had a good, fun and WINDY day catching on the size 16 ruby 2 under the ruby ruby.  This was a new experience for Leo but he caught some fish.

Sunday, Mike from Texas spent the better part of the day on the water with Carolyn.  Lots of fish on the ruby 2, or stripping the filoplume.  Mainly fished from the boat ramp up to the fish ladder.

Stan had Ralph and his with Beth fishing Tuesday.  This was on their bucket list of things they wanted to try.  They fish a lot, but have never fly fished.  Yes, another ruby 2 under the big ruby day.  Tough day due to the extreme water fluctuations.

Don – 4/25/18

James and Gina took two couples from Pennsylvania out Wednesday.  Dreary, rainy day and the water was dancing all over the place.  The ladies, Delores and Joan went with

Ray – 14/25/18

Gina.  They got few fish to the boat on a black copperhead midge under a peach egg or stripping the tiger tail.  The guys, Don and Ray were doing pretty good on the same patterns.
