Change In Flow Pattern!

Awesome weather.  60s in the morning then mid to upper 80s during the day and lots of sunshine.  Looking at more of the same Thursday.  Friday shows a little more chance of rain with highs in the mid 80s.  Pretty much the same for Saturday, and then Sunday rain chances increase and the temperature drops to the upper 70s.

We have had the same generation pattern for over a week now.  Low generation in the morning (had been no generation), then ramping up to 3-4 units around 1:00 to 2:00 p.m.  The low flow has been good for fishing and one can still wade in various areas.

Stan on the water Thursday and Friday with Mark from the St. Louis area.  Couple of good days for Mark.  What more could one want….beautiful weather and catching fish!.  Thursday he

Mark – 9/14/18

fished a little ruby under the big ruby, a partridge & orange soft hackle, holographic green crackleback and a 56er.  Friday it was a P&P under the little ruby midge.  Also caught some on the holographic green crackleback including at 19 incher.

Carolyn had Edward and Jim from the St. Louis area out Friday and Saturday.  They had booked two full days but with the water coming on high in the afternoons, we hung around for a little while to see how it would fish.  Both days when it came on, fishing basically went south so we went in early.  However, while it was low flow, we had lots of hits and caught some fish on the ruby 2 under a big ruby or the red tunghead midge.  Pulled a few on the holographic green crackleback and 56er.   And caught some on an apricot egg pattern.  Saturday, nymph style fishing was mainly on the ruby 2 midge.

Jim on the water Saturday with Chris from Tennessee.  Chris has fished with us in the past but quite a while ago and he had to brush off the cob webs.  Got the hang of it again and it was a tiger tail or the hot hare’s ear nymph.
