It was definitely a “nippy” day yesterday. Temperatures in the 50s and drizzle almost all day. Shiver!. Might hit 63-64 today, but it has been overcast most of the day. Forecast for tomorrow is more rain. We got dumped on Friday and, like I said, drizzle or something almost all day yesterday. Looks like 100% chances of rain tomorrow, 50% the next day and cool. These rest of the week is clear with temperatures moving back into the 70s into the weekend. Next weekend is looking promising So far, Table Rock not not come up a full foot yet with all the rain we have had. Still some runoff, so we might make it. No problem, as we were 7 inches under power pool for this time of the year. Generation pretty much off the past two days. One for one hour at noon yesterday and scheduled to come on for an hours this evening. Schedule says we will see the same pattern for Monday. Stan on the water last Tuesday with Jack and Mary Kay. Tough day. The good news was that it was a beautiful day, so they all enjoyed the day. Keith and Wayne from Illinois, spent the morning with Carolyn. Caught several fish right off stripping the holographic green crackleback and tiger tail on the 2.6 ips sinking leader. After catching several fish, we decided to go look for some larger ones. Pulled some more on the mini sculpin various other patterns, but nothing really big. Most of the fish we caught, however, were good quality fish, in the 15-17 inch range. Last nice fish of the day was on the pumpkin crackleback stripping subsurface in shallow water. Back on the water for Stan Wednesday. Much better day for Gene from Kansas, mainly on the white grub. Carolyn and Leon were out with Carolyn. Carolyn had a good day on the pumpkin crackleback, holographic green crackleback, tiger tail and big ugly. Carolyn had her “first”….pulling a couple nice fish on a dry…. the big ugly. Dana took David and his son, Zac out for half a day. Good days for these guys on the red San Juan worm, pumpkin crackleback and big ugly. Jim was down stream from all of us with Marg and Price. they had a good day on the JQ streamer and white grub. Dale got to use the gift certificate his wife bought him for a full day float with Jim on Thursday. They had a good day on the JQ, holographic green crackleback and white “thing” grub. Jim commented that the fish were “picky” at low water and I think we can all agree with this. Stan had Bob and Waldo from Texas out. They had a good day on the white grub in the early part of the morning and the P&P later that morning.

Looks like we are in for some rain. Projection for tomorrow is 100%. Sounds pretty positive to me! Chances again on Saturday with temperatures in the upper 50s or low 60s. A brief reprieve on Sunday with low 70s and only a 20% change of rain. Monday back into the 60s and 80% chance. After Monday, it back to sunshine and 70s. Generation seems to be tapering off a little. Steady low flow this past Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Monday went back to off in the morning and early afternoon then one or two units for just a few hours. Tuesday, it came on around 3:00 p.m. and they moved some water, but we saw lower flow in the afternoon yesterday and, again, for just about four hours. Today we are supposed to have some type of generation for seven hours later today. Am I behind?!?!? We finished up the Orvis 301 Clinics almost two weekends ago on Sunday, September 28. Stan had Jo and Jeff from Kansas. Pretty good day for these guys on the big ruby and a tiger tail. Water was running all day and really got ugly around 2:00 when they fired up everything. Gina had Cap and Max. They had a good day on the big ruby and a root beer midge. Both are good fly fishers. Darrell had Max’s father, Mark. Their best pattern was the JQ streamer. September 29, Stan Jan and Pam out for what turned out to be half a day. They had a good day on the black tunghead midge, and the holographic green crackleback. Pam just went along for the ride and to take pictures. Tim, from Texas spent the morning on the water with Darrell. Really fun day for Tim as he has not been fishing for some time. They caught on the black copperhead midge and a San Juan worm. September 30, Dana had Roger from Illinois out for half a day. Good day for Roger on a micro fly, copperhead black midge and white grub. One of our regulars from Kansas, Mike was out with Stan. Some quality fish on the the white grub. Finally made it to October! Last Wednesday, Darrell took Dennis and Eric out for half a day. Kind of slow this day, but they did boat some fish on the P&P midge. Carolyn was on the water on an instructional trip with Danny and Melinda from Texas. Fun day and fun couple. We worked on everything, including catching fish. It was the black tunghead midge, P&P, and holographic green crackleback. Last Thursday, Dana took Tony and John from California out all day. Tough day. Tony’s first time stripping and caught a nice rainbow on the gold varient sculpin. Bill, from Colorado, spent half a day on the water with Stan last Friday. Not a barn burner day, but pretty good. Bill’s best fish was a 17-1/4″ rainbow caught on the black copperhead midge under the big ruby. One unit was running then they put in. Carolyn had Lyle and Joan on the water Monday. Their son had fished with us before and bought them a guide trip and night’s stay in one of our cabins. This was Joan’s first time with a fly rod. Not sure who caught the most, but we fished the black copperhead midge, JQ streamer and holographic green crackleback and had a lot of fun.
