Spring Is Less Than A Month Away!

Maybe this coming week will be winter’s last fling!  We did get some sleet, snow, rain and freezing rain last Thursday.  However, almost all traces of that event are gone.  Beautiful day yesterday and again today.  Temperatures in the 40s yesterday and no wind.   Today looks like low 50s, sunshine and a little winc.  Tomorrow is calling for low 50s, with a chance of showers and thundershowers in the a.m. giving way to steadier rain in the afternoon.  More seasonal temperatures the rest of the week in the mid to upper 30s.  Looks like a slow warm up over the weekend (low to upper 40s), and into the low 50s by early next week.

Some type of generation every day since Thursday, when they turned on the equivalent of one generator at 8:00 a.m. and we have seen low to the equivalent of 1-1/2 generators every day.  So far, the higher generation has been in the a.m. and shut down to a low one by 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. each day.  The projection for tomorrow is no generation until 5:00 p.m. and it is projected to be a low one.

Fishing continues to be good to very good.  Although very few, if any, fishers were on the water Thursday, it didn’t slow down the fishers Friday, Saturday or today.  Everyone is reporting good days on size 16 or smaller gray scuds, red midges, size 14 hare’s ear nymphs, egg patterns, cracklebacks and sculpins or olive wooly buggers.

Jim on the water half a day yesterday with Reg, from Illinois.  Very good day for Reg on the size 10 CQ streamer, a size 18 black midge and the red midge.  By the time they got on the water, it had cut back to a low one generator.  This has been fishing very well.
