The Trout Are Happy and Healthy!

Kind of dodging the bullet on the rain the past few days.  Got some, but much less than forecast….so far.  The past two days have turned out beautiful with blue skies and lots of sunshine.  Woke up this morning to temperatures in the mid 50s and it already up to 67 degrees at 11:00 a.m.  Should hit the upper 70s.  Front coming through so Friday will only be in the upper 50s and Saturday is currently showing chances for rain and mid 40s.  Sunday and Monday are 50s then moving back into the 60s for the rest of the week.  Chances for rain showing up here and there.

Due to ongoing rain, and because the fourth generator is unavailable, they opened up two spillways yesterday at 10:00 a.m.  The good news is that most of the rain now appears to be heading southeast of us.  Keep your fingers crossed.

Lots of trips on the water the past two days.  Tuesday, Darren and Dana had a group from Texas on the water.  Ed and his daughter,

Elise and her husband David.  Dana took Ed and they had a good day fishing either a black copperhead or ruby 2 midge.  Elise and David are fairly new fly fishers, so Darren worked with both of them on casting.  He also let them land some fish on the ruby 2 and a size 14 scud.  Fun day for this family.

Beebe – 3/10/20

Gina and Carolyn had another family group on the water.  This group from Oklahoma consisted of  grandpa Beebe and his grandson, Bennett.  They fished with Gina.  Carolyn took the father,

Shari – 3/11/20

on the water Wednesday with Dana and have a good day catching on the ruby 2 or copperhead black midges.  We were concerned that fishing might go south because of the spillways gates opening up that morning, but it really did not seem to affect the fishing at all.

James – 3/11/20

James and Shari spent the morning on the water with Carolyn.  They did well on the cerise San Juan worm, and a ruby 2 midge dropped from either the Lightning Bug or a red tunghead midge.  Fun day for these two!  The thing all of us noticed is how beautiful and healthy the fish are.  They are chunky and really colored up well.  These pictures do no do them justice!
