Lots Of Boats On The Water This Weekend!

Other than strong winds, the weekend was great.  Lots of sunshine, dry weather, really warm temperatures but lots of WIND!  Forecast calls for heavy rain later today, tonight and into tomorrow morning.  We are crossing our fingers it goes further north.

No chance in the generation pattern.  We are so close to power pool on Table Rock, but the rain forecast will certainly change that.  We’ll just have to see how much we get and then figure out how much longer we will see the flow we are currently experiencing, or maybe even more!

Despite the heavy flow, fishing has been pretty darn good!  Jim on the water last Wednesday with Mark from Iowa.  Mark is an excellent fly flinger and hooked up with lots of fish on the big size 12 ruby with a size 14 hot hare’s ear nymph.  Carolyn had a brand new to fly fishing couple out for the second day of their two-day school and they caught lots of fish on the ruby 2 under the big ruby and even pulled in a couple stripping the holographic green crackleback.  (Had to introduce them to streamer presentation!).

Thursday, Gina took Wednesday Jim out for a while.  Not quite a good this day, but Jim brought in enough to keep him happy on the ruby 2.  Carolyn had a brand new to fly fishing couple out for the second day of their two-day school and they a fun day of learning presentation, playing and catching fish on the ruby 2 under the big ruby and even pulled in a couple stripping the holographic green crackleback.  (Had to introduce them to streamer presentation!).

Grey from Columbia spent half a day Saturday on the water with Jim.  Another good day for him also on the big ruby with the size 14 hot hare’s ear dropper.

Sunday, Dana took one of his regular regulars, Jeff out for half a day.  After the rain we had late Saturday, the fish were a little more picky.  They still had a fun day, and caught several on an orange egg pattern, lightning bug or a white minor jig.  Carolyn had another student working on his second day of school so they hit the water and caught fish on the ruby 2 under the big ruby nymph-style presentation.  This was a bit slower than previous days.  However, when it was time for him to work on streamer presentation, first cast was a fish.  Yesterday was certain a better streamer day than midges.  He was throwing a 5 ips sinking leader with the JQ streamer trailed with a holographic green crackleback.  He definitely likes this technique.  Caught fish on either fly.
