Hot Out There!

We continue to see 90s almost every day now.  Getting down into the 70s at night and early morning.  Don’t see much of a change in this pattern for a while.

No major change in the generation pattern.  Still no generation from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. until the next day as early as 11:00 a.m. but as late as 1:00 p.m.  An exception last Monday when they turned it on at 10:00 a.m.  Monday’s are always a surprise.

Jerry and Cathy on the water last Monday for a half day float with Carolyn.  As usual, slow in the early morning while the fog was on.  Once it lifted a little, a size 20 black soft hackle, the black copperhead midge or ruby 2 were the best patterns.  However, this was one of those days when they cranked on the generators early….10:00 a.m. so we quickly changed out to the big ruby with a red San Juan dropper on one and the white mega work on the other.  As long as we could, we rowed up below the fish ladder area and drifted down.  Two doubles and several others hooked doing this.  Fast and furious catching for a little while.  Another unit came on and we found a spot and pulled a few out on the JQ streamer.  Then it just got to dirty and fast so the fun was over.

Tuesday, Jerry and Cathy spent that morning on the water with Stan.  This day they left it off until at least noon.  Another slow morning, but they finally caught some fish on the ruby 2 midge.  Jim had Charles and Kris out for half a day.  They had very little experience with streamers and wanted to learn a bit more about this method so Jim hooked them up and they pulled fish on the tiger tail and also a few early on a #20 black soft hackle.  They had a great time with these techniques.

Jim had Jonathan from Kentucky out Wednesday morning.  Low/flat water made fishing tough for them plus this was Jonathan’s first time with a fly rod.  Worked on skills and Jonathan brought in a few fish on the tiger tail, bug eye bugger and baby ruby.
