Lots of Water…Lots of Fish

Running four generators 24/7 and expect to see this trend for a few more weeks.  Weather forecast are good until Monday night when they are now forecasting the possibility of rain Monday night into Tuesday.  Cross your fingers.  We don’t need this rain! 

Fishing from boats is absolutely great.  Jim had Alec and a friend, Jim, from here in Missouri on the water for a full day on Friday.  Good day pulling Bug-Eye buggers in the morning, then the red midge, gray and brown scuds later in the day.  Stan had Gary and Barry from Lee’s Summit.  Gary said this was the second best day he has had fly fishing and he fishes a lot.  The Big Ruby, pink San Juan and Copper John were their flies for the day. 

Another great day Saturday.  Darrell took our one of our long-time regulars, Mike, from Iowa.  He really need to get on the water as his wife wanted to go shopping.  So….she went shopping and he caught fish!  Everyone was happy.  Good day on on the Bug-Eyed Bugger and red midge.  Jim had Jim and Dean from South Dakota out for half a day.  Lots of fish on the scuplin olive Bug-Eye bugger, red midge and pink San Juan. 

Overall, lots of fish, good quality…that is FAT…fish and full of flght!  Folks are also catching fish from the outlet areas. During the day, this is hot for a while, then slows down and, wait long enough, hot again.  Stay with it and you’ll probably pick up a few fish.  Not too much room because the water is so high, but catching them on a variety of patterns.  RS2 was even working a couple days ago.  The standard patterns, gray or tan scuds, egg patterns and San Juan worms are working well.
