Summertime has arrived on the Little Red with the sun beating down. Drift fishing in the morning is comfortable until about noon, then the heat begins to get uncomfortable. A little wet wading break sometimes helps the mid-afternoon heat. The generation remains on a 12 hour basis starting at about 9:00 am. Yesterday (July 10) the generation changed to a longer schedule with only one generator running from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm then both operating till 1:00 am. This was caused by a mechanical problem and has been corrected. Water releases will return to the 9:00 am to 10:00 pm schedule today. This is to remain the same until the lake reaches its normal level of 462.54.
The bite remains good and the fish are in good shape due to the generation providing cold water during the heat of the day. My fly fishers continue to catch rainbows and browns on small midge pupas and size 16 mayfly nymphs. Clear water is making the presentation and smaller tippet more important.
