A Perfect Day!

Well, they finally did it!  Shut down the water yesterday from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.   Back on until last last night, then back on this morning around 6:00.  Scheduled to be on until noon, when they will shut down for about four hours and back on until late tonight.  The other great thing, the weather was perfect.  Sunshine, no wind, and in the 50s.  Should be pretty good weather again today, with the prediction to be in the mid to upper 50s.  By tomorrow, the cold front will start moving in so our weather is going a bit sour.  If the water is off this weekend, I really don’t think the fishing will be sour.

Both Stan and Jim had trips out yesterday.  That was the other part of the perfect day.  Fishing was great.  Stan had Earl and Larry, from Texas, out for half a day.  They did not start until arount 9:00 in the morning so they got the benefit of most of the off-water time.  Great day on the size 16 red tunghead midge and the primrose & pearl midge.  Lots of nice size fish.  Jim had Jerry and Paul out for a late start half day.  I know Jerry is from Kansas, and sorry Paul, I forgot your state of origin.  They too had a great day on the red midge, red San Juan and gray scud.   Shannon and one of our friends, Mac, hit the water around 2:00 p.m and fished until they were too cold to fish any more.  They had a good day on midges, an olive wooly bugger, but did best stripping the holographic green crackleback.  Also nice size fish!  Reports coming in from the river were good.  Everyone was having a good day and catching good numbers of fish.  Just issued a catch and release trophy pin this morning to a gentlenmen from Minnesota who caught a 21 inch rainbow yesterday on a black wooly bugger.   How sweet it is!
