Woke up this morning to a white deck!  Im happy.thats enough snow for the year.  Fortunately, I think we have had the snow for the next several days.  It will be really cold again tomorrow, but we will see a warming trend and actually be in the upper 40s by Monday and upper 50s Tuesday!!  Then 50s through the entire week and into the weekend.  Right now they are forecasting rain over the weekend but that it an entire week away.  Were wait and see.  Yeah!.warmer weather. 

Past few days we have seen three to four hours of generation in the morning.  Off around 10:00 a.m. for seven to eight hours then back on again for several hours.  Probably will continue with this schedule unless we get some major power demands.  They have followed that schedule so far today. 

New Years Day was cold!!  Yes, it was in the 40s, but with no sun and lots of wind, it was downright cold.  A few of the gals from the club were on the river Sunday and fishing was pretty slow.  We caught a few fish and kept our tradition going.

Beautiful weather these past few days.  Not too hot, just enough wind and no rain!  Looks like more of the same for the next week.  Temperatures in the low to mid-80s and no sigh of rainat least not yet. 

Generation schedule has been pretty consistent.  The equivalent of a low one unit (many days they are running two units to do this) in the morning until early afternoon.  At 2:00 p.m. they are turning on another one or two units for 3-4 hours, then back to the low one for the balance of the night. 

The first few days after they changed the schedule to a low one unit in the a.m. then ramping up to the equivalent of two units or more, it was nasty water, especially after the ramp up.  So, we had a few really challenging days on the water.  Stan on the water with Ted and Charles from Indiana last Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.  They caught fish, but the best day was at the end of the week.  Things started clearing up a little.  Best patterns for them were the big ruby with the d-ribbed red tunghead dropper. 

Jim out Thursday with David from Oklahoma.  They caught fish working on Davids streamer techniques pulling a bug eye.  Mel and Steve spent half a day with Darrell.  It was the size 16 red d-ribbed tunghead midge for them.

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!
