What happened to Fall?  Temperature this past Saturday morning was in the teens!  Yesterday we had snow flakes and sleet at times.  Fortunately, it was just warm enough that nothing stuck to the ground around here.  This morning it was only 20 when I went out the door.  Not ready for this yet.  Good news is that by this coming Friday, it will be in the mid to upper 50s.  Yeah!  And, by next week, we seem to be back into the low to mid 50s all week.

No change in the generation pattern.  Off almost all day.  One or two units on late in the day for a couple hours.

Carolyn on the water Tuesday and Wednesday with Tim and Judy from Nebraska.  They both book our school back in May and needed some more practice!  Beautiful sunny day Tuesday and the fish were working the banks.  We put on a stimulator with a black copperhead midge and picked fish most of the day on this.  As the day

got brighter, we switched to the P&P to finish the trip.  Wednesday was another nice day although a little cloudy.  However, that didn’t stop the fish from looking up and Tim caught his nicest fish on the stimulator plus a couple others!  Otherwise, the fish were taking the black copperhead midge.   Jim out with a couple of his long-time clients from Hawaii, Wayne and Colleen.  Good

day for them on the P&P with a gray scud dropper.  Bob and Dennis from Texas were on the water with Darren.  Good day for these guys too.  They were fishing the rusty or P&P midges with a scud dropper.  Beautiful rainbows!

Dennis – 11/7/18

They too found most of the fish were up very shallow near the banks.  Gina had Ron and his wife Sharon out for the

morning.  Their best fly was the black copperhead midge.  Sharon is pretty new to fly fishing but got a good cast going and landed some trout.  Maybe she is on her way to

becoming a fly fisher (she normally fishes with a spinning rod).

Thursday, Carolyn took Lawerene and Wendy from Texas out for half a day.  New fly fishers and, unfortunately, they had a tough day!  We fished everywhere and tried everything.  Did pick a few fish on the black copperhead midge.

This weekend, the River Runners Women’s Fly Fishing group was here for their annual Taneycomo fix.  Cold start Saturday morning, but most of the 20 ladies who showed up, managed to spent at least a few hours on the water fishing and almost everyone caught fish.  A great day was had by all.  Back to the water on Sunday for some more catching and fun.  And, Sunday was certainly much warmer!!!!
