Ketchup Time Again !

Some rain in here today but it should be cleared out by this afternoon.  Through the weekend and into next week the weather looks great.  Low 80s and maybe some upper 70s with little chance for rain.  Sounds good to me.

Pretty stable pattern on the generation.  Off or low in the a.m. then increasing around 10:00 a.m.  Today we have low flow (30-40 mwh) and it should bump up around 1:00 p.m.

Last weekend, Saturday and Sunday, Carolyn and Dana had Mindy, Matt, and Matt’s father, Gale on the water all day Saturday and half a day Sunday.  Mindy and Matt have fished with us before and this was Gale’s introduction to our water.  Saturday we had no generation until 2:00 when they turned on one unit then a second came on about 30 minutes later.  We all had a good day on the ruby 2, red San Juan worm, black copperhead midge and the Tiger Tail.  Pretty much the same patterns and generation flow again on Sunday.

Paul and his daughter, Katy spent the morning on the water

with James a week ago this past Monday.  Tough day, but they brought some fish to the boat on the ruby 2 midge.

Tuesday, Caleb from Oklahoma, spent the morning on the water with Carolyn.  He wanted to catch fish and work on his skills a little.  He had a fun, learning day and caught fish mainly on the ruby 2 midge.  Also caught a few

stripping the holographic green crackleback.  This was one of those days where the water went up and then came down.  Hate it when they do that!

Thursday, James and Carolyn took a family from Texas out.  James had Katrianna and her brother, Jaden in his boat.  Carolyn took the father, Robert.  Water was off when we started but came on not too long after we hit the water.  Fished some on the rise, but really fished better after it settled down a little.  Everyone caught some nice fish, especially on the ruby 2 midge.  We also fished a big ugly with a P&P dropper and had fun with that.  Last, but not least, the holographic green

crackleback.  Not hot and heavy but enough to pull in a few stripping.

First time fly fishers to our area, Mike and Dylan spent Saturday on the water with James.   Think they were pretty happy with our fishery.  It was the big ruby with a ruby 2 or P&P dropper for these guys.

Sunday, Hank and his son Julius spent the morning on the water with Dana.  Red beaded San Juan worm and the copperhead black midge were their patterns for the trip.
