Lots of Water!

Just what we did not need today……rain!  Looks like it is out of here for the rest of the day.  Monday and Tuesday show a 20% chance with temperatures in the low 60s.  Wednesday have rain chances up a little and still in the low 60s.  Friday and Saturday will be in the mid 70s and by Sunday and Monday, we’re back to 40% chances for rain and temperatures in the low 80s.

Unfortunately, the rain doesn’t seem to be slowing down so the river won’t be slowing down for a while.  We still have five spillways and three generators going for a total flow of around 14750 cfs.  It will be a while before this lets up.

Gary took Ted from California to Roaring River this past Monday.  Ted took our Orvis 2-day fly fishing school last October and wanted to get some more experience and especially the chance to wade fish.  They had a good day over there even though the water was a little up and running as well as off colored.  They nymphed with a cerise worm and did some streamer catching on a #14 olive bugger chasing the tiger tail.
