Cooler Weather!!!

Rain came in early today, cleared for a while, and we will get some more tonight which will continue into early tomorrow morning.  Currently, it looks like most of it will be out of the picture by 9:00 a.m. or so.  Temperatures tomorrow will be cool for a change…..upper 60s!  Sunday looks like mid 70s and then more normal temperatures for this time of the year, low 80s and 70s through next week.

After a couple weeks with low flow every day, we have had no flow, except for one unit a couple hours late this afternoon.  This looks like it will be the pattern through this weekend.  Monday will be no flow all day, then two units on at 2:00 p.m. for three hours.

Jim on the water Monday with Dick from here in Missouri.  Dick is getting started so Jim took him through the paces.  They caught fish on a hot hare’s ear nymph, scud and stripping the tiger tail.  Stan was out with Paul, also from Missouri.  Think this was his first time here on Taneycomo although he fishes various Parks throughout the state.  He caught a nice 18 inch rainbow on a P&P under the ruby 2.

Tuesday, Kevin and Patty spent the morning with Jim.  Fished a little slow for them that day, but they did catch from on the hot hare’s ear and a ruby midge.

Carolyn had Kathy and her husband out Wednesday.  This was Kathy’s day.  Jim was just going along to observe.  She is brand new to fly fishing so Carolyn worked with her on the roll cast to start with.  Lots of hits on a black copperhead midge and several hook ups but could not get them to the boat.  Think the fish were just barely taking this pattern that day.  Finally put an apricot egg pattern on her and first hit, Kathy hooked up with her first fish on a fly rod that she got to the boat.  After that, it was several more to the point that Jim decided he needed to get into the act.  Before going in, Kathy mastered the regular pick up and lay down cast.  Think she is “hooked”.
