The river remains clear with an increase in generation.  The Corp has informed me that they have requested about 10 hours of 2 unit generation for the next several days due to the 3 feet of excess water in the lake.  Southwest Power has the final say of setting the time of this generation and it looks like it will be from about 10:00 am to 9:00 pm each day to correspond to the peak demand period. It would be wise to check this each day before making plans for the holiday weekend.

Rainbows and browns are taking small mayfly emergers, nymphs and midge pupas.  Size 18’s and 20’s seem to be the best choice.

Wishing you a Happy and Safe Labor Day weekend.  Please show courtesy to your fellow anglers especially during crowded holiday weekend and don’t forget to join your local TU Chapter and Little Red Foundation for the river cleanup on Saturday, September 10th at Red River Adventures Trout Resort.

Cooler weather is forecasted so now would be a good time to book your September and October fishing trip!! 

Good Fishing!!
