Tree Colors Are Not Quite There!

Couple of beautiful days yesterday and again today.  Temperatures in the 70s with lots of sunshine.  Think we will have a repeat tomorrow.  Thursday still looks like 70s, but rain will be moving in during the afternoon and evening hours.  Wednesday a definite temperature change with more chances for showers off and on all day.  Thursday will be mostly sunny and 60.  By the weekend, we are looking at sunny skies Saturday and upper 50s.  Sunday upper 50s but chances for showers pop up again!

No generation still except during the evening hours when they are running one or two units for an hour or two.  Otherwise, lots of wading time during the day!

Whole lot of fishing going on the past week.  Dana out a week ago this past Saturday with Brian and friend, Kelly.  Tough day but they did boat some fish on a tan b-bug or a peach egg pattern.

Sunday (Oct. 21) Carolyn took Pat and his friend Keith out for half a day.  Good day for these guys on the ruby 2 midge and stripping a holographic green crackleback.  Keith has fish for trout for a long time, but had never fished for them with a fly rod.  He had a good start with a nice 19 inch rainbow.

Mike spent Monday morning on the water with Carolyn.  This was another tough day.  Worked hard for fish and caught several on the black copperhead and ruby 2 midges.  Really wanted to catch a few on the holographic green crackleback as this is Mike’s favorite way to fish, but they would not cooperate, so we took what we could get!

Tuesday, was a very good day for John and Bob who fished

with Carolyn.  Most all of the fish were caught on the ruby 2 midge.

Gina had Virginia out for part of the morning on Wednesday.  She brought several fish to the boat on the ruby 2 or black copperhead midges.  It was one of those cool days, and Virginia called it a day early since she was cool and tuckered out.  Jim had Gary and his friend Allen on the water for half a day.  Carolyn had Bob, the other part of this three-guy trip.  Allen is brand new to fly fishing, so Jim worked with him on casting and other necessary techniques and they fished off and on in between.  Caught some fish on the baby ruby with a gray scud dropper.  Carolyn’s fisher, Bob had a good day on the black

copperhead midge and three takes (missed them all) on a size 14 yellow Humphy up against the bank!  First time he had tried a dry and really liked this.  The next day, Thursday, Gina had Bob and Allen and Carolyn took Gary.  Bob got

to do some more fishing with a dry, this time with a dropper, and had fun doing this.  They had a good day on the black copperhead and ruby 2 midges.   Gary had a good day on the black copperhead midge and broke off on a really nice fish on a dry up against the bank.  Saw him swimming away laughing at us!

Leann – 10/26/18

Friday, Carolyn had two new fly fishers from Kansas, Rob and Leann.  Fun day working with them on the basics and letting them catch a few fish on a ruby 2 midge.   Nick and Mike spent the morning with

Gina.  They both attended our Orvis 301 clinic last August.  Good day for them on the ruby 2 and black copperhead midges and a gray scud.

Carolyn had Josh and wife, Kate on the water Saturday.  Fun day for them.  Kate has fished Taneycomo before and never caught a fish.  We proved her wrong.  Both had a good day on the black copperhead midge early then the P&P dropped under
