No Generation!!!

We have been having beautiful weather.  Sunny and warm.  One recent day was hot!  It was actually in the low 90s.  Most of the time, however, we have been having upper 60s and low 70s.  Today was only in the mid 60s but it was nice.  Looking at the coming week, it looks like low 50s Monday and Tuesday then back into the 70s by Wednesday and even 80s for Friday and over the weekend.  Bad news is that the chances for rain are there almost every day, but it looks more intense by the weekend.  Cross your fingers…..we don’t need more rain.

Can you believe it?  Saturday, they had the generators off until 7:00 a.m.  Then they started ramping up the generators and had four units going by 9:00 a.m.   At noon, they started shutting them down and by 2:00 it was zero generators and the level was down to 702.9.  We haven’t seen that in ages!!  Hope we see it again.  Today they ran one unit until 8:00 a.m. and will run two units the balance of the day.

Dana on the water Saturday with Stuart and Brian.  They hit the water during the rise and high water that day.  They had a pretty good day on the black copperhead midge, prince nymph, and the cerise San Juan Worm.  After the water shut down, Gina took herself fishing.   She took this video of tons of gray scuds swimming on the bottom scuds.

Mother’s Day I took me fishing.  Wonderful day in the low 60s with a little wind blowing.  Had two generators going when I put the boat in.  Been a while since I rowed my boat and I just wanted to get a feel for it again as well as look at the river.  Caught some nice  rainbows stripping the holographic green crackleback behind a JQ streamer.  Fish hit both patterns.  Also caught one on a cerise San Juan under the big ruby and a gray scud under the big ruby.  Nice to be on the water again!  Cannot believe how fat and healthy the fish are.

Nice Rainbow – 5/10/20
