I hope everyone was able to get out and enjoy this great weekend we just had.  Temperatures in the 70s both days and low flow on the river!  The next two days will be a little nicer than normal for this time of the year.temperatures in the mid to upper 50s.  However, Thursday will dive to the upper 30s and the weekend looks like 30s, maybe lower 40s.  Back to the real time of the year! 

Generation of some type pretty much non-stop since last Wednesday.  However, over the weekend, they did do what they projected with a low one unit running most of the time and a nice 703.8 level plus or minus, at 1200-1500 cfs.  Nice flow! Its wadeable in areas and a great drift!

What an outstanding day yesterday!  It actually reached 75 degrees.  Unfortunately, a big change is in the works.  Today we will probably see upper 40s.  We already had 50s this morning and the temperatures are dropping.  Tomorrow will again be in the 50s, but by the weekend, looks like 40s and some moisture.  Lets hope it stays warm enough to keep that moisture to rain drops instead of snow flakes.  Monday next week looks yuckie but back into the 40s for the rest of the week and pretty much sun and clouds mixed. 

The generation schedule has also been cooperative while we were taking advantage of this great weather.  A couple generators for a couple hours yesterday morning, then off the rest of the day.  Nothing on today until 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. 

Gina and Carolyn both had the good fortune to have guide trips Wednesday.  Gina had a half day trip with Jim from Monett.  Even if they had not caught a fish, it would have been a great day.  But, to add to the great day, they did catch fish on the size 18 gray scud, copperhead black zebra midge, and tiny midges under a dry fly.  Fun day!  Doc from Oklahoma spent the day with Carolyn.  Fish seemed spotty.  Catch 4 or 5 fish in an area, then it would dry up.  Move around and hit some more.  Probably best fly of the day was the holographic red midge with black wire spiraled around the body.  Of course, we hooked some on the holographic green crackleback stripping just under the surface where we saw lots of fish dimpling!

Nice Weather for December! Sunday, December 14th, 2014

The past two days were wonderful.  60x yesterday and again today.  However, as we know, all good things must come to an end.  Tomorrow doesnt look too bad as it will be in the upper 50x and partly sunny.  Tuesday and Wednesday are projected in the mid 40s and by Thursday, upper 30s with chances for moisture.  Saturday might even see a few snow showers in the a.m.  But, back into the 40s by Sunday and into early next week

Generation has been all over the board the past few days.  Last Tuesday and Wednesday,  it was on in the morning, then off late morning so it was dropping out most of the day.  Since Thursday, we have had generation non-stop.  Today is wadeable, but it was a bit high (at least for me) yesterday.

Jim on the water last Tuesday with Derek from Illinois.  Despite the crazy water, they had a very good day on the JQ streamer, black midge and hot hares ear nymph.

Derek hit the water with Jim again on Wednesday.  Not as good as Tuesday, but certainly another good day on the black midge and hot hares ear nymph.

What was supposed to be the warmer day of the week last Thursday turned out to be cold, overcast and two units running.  Pat from California (weather shock for him)  spend half a day on the water with Stan.  Slow start, but they finally got into some fish and pulled off a good day on the big ruby and copperhead midge.  Also caught several on an egg pattern.
