Break From The Heat!

Pleasant break from the heat.  Had a pretty good rain yesterday afternoon.  Definitely cooled us off a little.  High for the next three days looks like low 80s.  Yeah!  Good news, bad news, chances for rain.  Right now, the best chance appears to be on Sunday with an 80% chance.  That remains to be seen.  Two days ago, we were looking at 70% today!  Gorgeous day today.  80s, sunny and a breeze blowing.  Might see some rain late today.  Next week it’s back to the 90s although it looks like low 90s most of the time.

Pretty much the same generation schedule.  Off early evening until early afternoon the next day.  However, today the generation flow when it comes on will be less.  We’ll need a few days to see what the trend looks like there.

Rick and his friend, Gary on the water with Stan Sunday.  This was Gary’s first time with a fly rod and he did pretty good.  Think he surprises himself.  They had a good day on the P&P midge.

Monday, Carolyn took Larry and Dea out for the morning.  Dea is new to fly fishing so we worked on casting for a while.  After she got the hang of it, it was catching

fish on the ruby 2 and P&P midges.  Think she had a blast, know Larry did!  Great day on the water.

Tuesday, Stan took Jim from Oklahoma on a quick 1/2 day trip.  They started at 7:00 a.m. as Jim had to be off early.  Slow bite until around 10:00 a.m. but then they started catching on the ruby 2 and P&P midges.

Gina had a new couple out yesterday.  They started out with instruction on the various casts, and once they passed the mustard, it was on the water

catching.  Good day for them on the ruby 2 midge.  Carolyn had a student, Jerry on the water for just a few hours.  After he mastered casting, we worked on mending and other line management techniques.  While doing this, (hummm, wonder why we had a fly on) anyway, he hooked a couple fish.  He’s getting

Jerry – 6/20/18

ready to take a trip to Montana a week from this coming Friday with his son and grandson to fish the Bitterroot.  I think he’ll be ready.  Lucky guy.


Overall, fishing has been good.  Lots of fishers coming into the shop after having a great day on the water.  Some days, almost anything that hits the water will work.  Better take advantage of this no generation while we have it.
