Fishing Has Been Good.

At least we are seeing some off generator time over the past four days.  Unfortunately, it has not been for an extended period of time any of these days.  But, beggars should not be choosie!  Generators off in the a.m. until 6:00 almost every day, then on for 5-6 hours.  Thursday we had six hours of off time from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.  Friday we had five hours of off time from noon until 5:00 p.m.  Saturday we had six hours of off time from 11:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.  Shut off today at 11:00 a.m. and the projection says it will start back up at 6:00 p.m.  Weather had definitely turned colder.  Yesterday was not too bad except for the wind.  Think it was in the upper 40s, low 50s.  today we are in the 30s and the up coming week looks like 40s and sunny early in the week to partly cloudy the balance of the week.

Jim on the water Friday with Ray from Virginia.  They had a good day using the red midge, red San Juan worm, gray scud and a size 12 bug-eyed bugger. 

Saturday Jim had Kevin and Steve from here in Missouri out for the day.  They called into the shop around 4:00 p.m. and said not to wait for them as they were “hammering them on the bug-eyed bugger”.  Know it was a good day as Kevin was in this morning to get ammunition to go out and try his luck at catching some more today.  What does a person who works in a fly shop do on their day off?  Carolyn saw an opportunity to hit the water yesterday afternoon, so loaded up the drift boat, rods, fly boxes, and off to the water.  Wind was nasty, but what a great 1-1/2 hours.  After a few no takes on the sculpin patterns or midges, it was on with a holographic green crackleback.  Jackpot!  Just as Shannon had fished it on Thursday, you couldn’t keep the fish off this pattern.  Just stand there with a smile on your face as you keep bringing in those nice rainbows.  Thank you!

Got a nice picture from Darrell this afternoon of a beautiful rainbow he caught and those fishers who are bundled up and fishing today have had a good day.
