Monday Update

Four units are going already this morning, and the word is that the Corps is beginning a draw down of the reservoirs that should be complete by July 5th.  With the inch of rain over the weekend and the extra water from Beaver Lake, Table Rock is up about 3/10 of a foot for the week.  Despite all this the generation was shut down on Saturday and Sunday from midnight to noon.  So there was good wading this weekend.


The flies that caught fish were the olive, rusty  and red midges , and hot pink San Juan worm. On sinking leaders with streamers, the olive filoplume  and holographic green crackleback, and olive wooly bugger have been hot.  We were fishing high water all week  and drifting the midges and tucking into seams for the streamers. 


At the outlets, we hear from our customers that grey scuds  and brown and peach eggs have fished well.  They haven’t minded the big water because they said the fish they caught were bigger with the water up. 


Last Wednesday Perry and his daughter Brittany who is attending college in Branson went fishing with Stan.   Brittany had studied late for a big exam and then took some time wtih her dad to learn about flyfishing.  The boat ramp was closed Tuesday and Wednesday for paving so Stan put them in downstream and rowed up to Fall Creek.  They just got settled and into fish when the horns sounded!?*#  Such is life on a tailwater.  Perry and Brittany caught fish on the rusty and olive midge. They called it quits a little early and we hope Brittany got a good nap and a good grade on her exam.
