What an unbelievable July! Temperatures in the 70s for several days. Unfortunately, a couple of those days we had a pretty good wind, so it actually felt cool at times! We are heading back into the upper 80s and low to mid 90s. Chances of rain Wednesday, and I think we may have a chance of rain over the weekend. To be continued….. Generation has been it’s normal erratic. Not really off for the past three days. Friday was one unit which ramped up to a low two around 5:00 p.m. We have seen the equivalent of one to a little lower Saturday and today, Sunday. Projection for tomorrow is no generation until noon, then 2 units for an hour, ramping to a low three, then four units by 2:00-3:00 p.m. We will see four units for 5 hours. Trying to get caught up a little at a time. Stan on the water last Monday with Larry from Iowa. They had a half day of catching fish on a yellow egg and the black midge with a copper head. This was Larry’s first time with a fly rod and he did well. Tuesday, Stan took Mike and Clayton out for half a day. These new fly fishers from Texas had a good day on the yellow egg and the holographic green crackleback. There was only one unit on at about 1200 cfs for most of their time on the water. Nice! Carolyn had Jessica and Luis out for half a day. Luis – 7/15/14 For his first time fly flinging, Luis did well. He had a couple on stripping a ginger wooly bugger and a few on and off on the black copper tunghead midge. Definitely was not a fast and furious day for these two, but it was a beautiful, cool July day. Darrell took Mike from Michigan out Wednesday. Weird day. Normally we have been seeing water on during the afternoon. Off, from midnight until noon or later the next day. Wednesday, it was on at midnight and continued until 7:00 a.m. the next morning. A slow day, but Mike boated some fish on the P&P midge. Thursday, Jim took Eric and Darren from Smithville, MO out for the day. Pretty good day for these guys even though there was no best fly. Darren was pretty new to the sport, so there was a bit of instruction for him while they were on the water. Darrell and Gina had a two-boat group out for half a day. Darrell took Dad, David, and Gina took the boys, Aaron and Tyler. Not a bad day for everyone on the P&P, chartreuse egg, and size 18 gray scud. Couple of neat fishing buddies, Tyler and Aaron.

Weather forecast says highs tomorrow will be in the upper 70s! Thursday could be mid to low 70! What month is this? Wow! Looks like some nice cool weather ahead. Also have (still) slight chances of rain through the weekend. Same old, same old generation schedule. Nothing in the mornings, then coming on from 1:00 p.m. or after. Generation for 5-6 hours then off again until the next day. Fishing continues to be up and down. Darrell on the water last Wednesday with Shannon from Kansas. Caught a few fish, but certainly not a bang up day. The ruby midge was their pattern. Stan had Taisha and her father, Jim out for half a day. They managed to find quite a few fish stripping the holographic green crackleback. Friday, Jim took Will and Thomas out for half a day. No best patterns, but they still managed to pull off a pretty good day. Darrell, Carolyn and Stan took a group of six out for half a day. Carolyn had Melissa and Scott. This was Melissa’s first time fly fishing and glad to say she did not get skunked! Best pattern, if you can say that, was the P&P. Darrell took Corey and Jack, They fished the copper dun and P&P midges. And, bringing up the rear was Stan with William and Scott. P&P and egg pattern were their patterns for the morning. Saturday, Carolyn took Dawn, aka, “The Stripper” out for the day. Really slow start in the a.m. We were below the root wad for a while in the morning and saw two fish caught. Lots of fishers and not many fish being caught. Late morning we started hooking a few fish on the P&P, but after the first unit came on and we found the right color bugger, it was wonderful stripping a ginger wooly bugger. Third unit on, we move locations and started catching on the CQ streamer under a 3.9 ips sinking leader. Finished off the day with a size 16 bead head hare’s ear under a size 16 red midge and drifted the high bank across from the Pointe. Lost two good size fish and landed a nice, really fat, 16 incher. Too bad he wasn’t as long as he was fat!
