Water is up….but, so is fishing!

Nice, warm days for a change.  We are expecting upper 70s today and tomorrow.  Slight cool down Friday; lower 70s with Saturday and Sunday in the 60s.  But, back into the 70s Monday and looking at 80s next week.  Slight chance of rain later today.  Chances again tomorrow, but the best chance appears to be Friday. 

We have seen pretty steady generation for past five days.  An average cfs of 6500, and level around 707′.  The level in Table Rock has also stablized around 916.8′.  We’ll just have to wait and see what the generators bring over the next few days.

With the water stabilizing, fishing has been very good.  Dana on the water half a day Sunday with Jeff, one of his regulars from Defiance, MO.  They had a really good day on the CQ streamer, the big ruby and a size 14 Primrose & Pearl midge. 

James - 5/6/13

Monday, Stan took James, from Arkansas, out all day.  Great day for James on the big ruby, the CQ streamer and a red holographic crackleback.    James had not been fly fishing for several years and I think he is glad he decided to get back into it.  Jim had one of his long-time regulars, Frank from Belton, MO, out all day Monday and again for half a day on Tuesday.  They had a great day on the CQ streamer, red midge with a black midge dropper and a black wooly bugger.  

Also out on Tuesday was Stan with a couple guys from Oklahoma, Bob and Dennis.  Another guy who had been away from fly fishing for several years, Dennis, had a great time.  Both guys did well on the big ruby and the red crackleback.   Gary from here in Branson spent a good part of the day on the water with Carolyn.  We were scouting around for more places where the fish have moved with this higher water.  Great day pulling the CQ streamer and holographic green crackleback.  Probably the better sized fish were on the size 16 red d-ribbed midge dropped under the big ruby.  Life is good!
