Ketchup Time!!

A little cool and overcast today.  High should be mid 50s and a little rain.  Saturday through Tuesday, it’s low to upper 60s.  By Wednesday, low 70s.  Thursday some rain is showing  up in the forecast.  50-60% chances through Saturday, and the temperatures drop down to the mid to upper 50%.  Week away so it will probably change.

For the past week we have seen the equivalent of a low one unit almost all day.  The exception some mornings around 8:00 or 9:00 is that they might run two units for one to three hours and then shut it back down to a low one the balance of the day.  Today, I think they ran a low two for an hour then back to the low one (35 mwh).  At the low level, there are several places where you can get into the water and wade.

Now to get caught up on trips.  Last Saturday, Darren took Jeff and Kirk from Kansas out for half a day.  Good day for these guys on the ruby 2 or black copper head midges.

them early while the sun was still out.  Scott from Iowa was fishing with Dana.  They had a good day too on the ruby 2 under the big ruby and stripping the JQ streamer.  They were mainly fishing the south bank across from the boat ramp.   Carolyn was on the water with Sheryl and Tabby.  They are getting ready to a trip to Montana this year and wanted to refresh their casting and work on dry fly and streamer presentation, so we spent most of our time doing this.  I can tell you they were not hitting well on streamers this day as we were fishing those.  On the drift out, we did throw the ruby 2 under the big ruby and they brought several fish to the boat.

Derek – 2/28/21. 22″ rainbow

Sunday, Dana and Derek from here in Missouri spend the day with Darren.  Really good day for these guys on a double egg rig or the black copperhead midge.  Their clue for the egg pattern were the number of redds they spotted while on the water.  Fished from the island

Dana – 2/28/21

up by the hatchery all the way through.  Best place was probably the north bank up from Fall Creek.

Dana this pas Tuesday.  Good day for these guys on either a size 10 or 12 gray scud.  They fished from the root wad down to the boat ramp.  Nikki had a fun day.
