Picked Up Some Rain From Tropical Storm Cristobal

Having some great weather except for the rain that came in last night and into this morning.  Like we need more rain.  The good news is that the next 8-9 days are showing very slight chances for more rain!  And, temperatures in the 80s for the most part.  Maybe we can dry out a little.

Table Rock has been generating 24/7 for several weeks now.  However, although not projected, they turned off the generators this morning on Table Rock.  HOWEVER – they did turn generators back on at 2:00 p.m.  With all the water that Norfork and Bull Shoals received over night and them already almost at flood stage, they don’t need our water.  The Corps had already warned Cotter that Bull Shoals would need to release 40,000-60,000 cfs of water to address Cristobal’s projected precipitation.  It will be somewhat of wait and see over the next few days as to what our generation pattern will be.  Right now the schedule shows generation all day tomorrow.  The only thing for certain is that we will start releasing water at some point to get Table Rock down.

Fishing has just been wonderful.  With the water off today, fishing is great for the waders!

Miles – 6/3/20

Last Wednesday, Dana took Corey and his son, Miles out for half a day.  Good day on the water

Corey – 6/3/20

for them on a size 10 gray scud or stripping the Tiger Tail.  Dennie and Adam didn’t get enough fishing on Tuesday so they booked another half day.  Darren got them into some more nice fish mainly stripping the Tiger Tail in a nice seam along the long island.  Another great day!

Larry – 6/4/20

Larry from Kansas spent half a day on the water with Carolyn Thursday.  He too has a really good day early on the cerise San Juan worm under the big ruby.  Nice, fat fish most of the trip!

Roy and Allison from Oklahoma spent Sunday morning on the water

Roy – 6/7/20

with Dana.  More nice, fat fish for them mainly on the black copperhead midge.  Sunday started out for only one unit going until around 10:00. When the second unit came on, fish started stacking up along the edges really nice.  We also had a school on the water that day and the students were catching lots of fish, especially when they the second unit.  The red d-rib midge or gray scud were their nymphing patterns and the JQ streamer was their stripping pattern.
