Wading Time Most Every Day

Bright, sunny day today and looks like lots more.  Temperatures in the 90s through the next weekend.  Might start cooling down the middle of the following week.

Generators continue to be off every late afternoon into the next morning so there is lots of wading time.  Bad news is, when they are off, the dissolved oxygen in generally below 5 ppm and lower.

Sun in the smoke

Stan and I just got home from Montana this past Thursday.  Wonderful but long trip.  Over 3600 miles but it was worth it.  Lots of smoke out there and they too have been having hot weather.  It was in the 90s the entire time we were there.  Many of the

Stan & guide, Dave

rivers were on “hoot owl” hours.  No fishing after 2:00 p.m.   Now you see why the fishing report is not up to date!

Darren on the water a week ago last Sunday.  He took Tom and his son, Grant, out for half a day.  Grant was brand new.  They landed fish mainly on scuds.  Craig from Indiana did a wade trip with Dana.  Red San Juan worm, grey scud and light scud were their patterns.

Monday, Dana had Fred and Sherry from Alabama on the water.  Black copperhead and ruby 2 midges were their best patterns.

Bill and Steve fished with Darren on Tusday. They did pretty well on scuds and the crackleback.

Wednesday, Darren took out Bill.  Bill has fished with us a few times over the years and he still comes back!  They were fishing scuds and more scuds.  Had a really nice one on for a while but just couldn’t get it to the net.  Well, maybe next time!

Hiedi and her son, Brock fish with Dana a week ago last Thursday.  Tough day but landed some on a red San Juan worm or gray scud.

Another tough day Friday the 13th for Darren’s guys Rich and Norm.  What they caught were on scuds.

Finally a good day on Saturday.  Darren took David and Jim out for half a day.  Water came on a little and scuds fished well.  After the water went down, they were still hitting in the shallows on scuds.

Last Tuesday, Dana had Tim on the water.  It was the copper dun midge all morning.

Carolyn out today with Ed and Rhonda from West Virginia.  Tough morning.  Had a few pick and rolls on a P&P and copper dun midges, but nothing to the net.  Late in the morning we went to stripping the holographic green crackleback and managed to get a few fish to the net.

Overall, fishing has certainly been slower then just a month ago.  But, it is that time of the year.  Just have to stay with it, and enjoy the day.  And, if you are lucky, you’ll catch a few fish!!
