I just returned Monday from a trip to New York for my son’s wedding.  After the happy event and 4 days in the city, it is good to be back to the Little Red River. The peace and quiet of the river are welcome after the hustle and noise of the big city. 

The river is clear with afternoon generation.  Three to five hours of 2 generators has been the daily schedule for weekdays with lesser amounts on the weekend.

I had a trip Tuesday afternoon and we did well on rainbows using sow bugs and size 20 midge pupa. There was a blue wing olive hatch about 4:00 pm on the lower river and I imagine this happened earlier on the upper sections.

Rain is forecast for the rest of the week so we’ll have to see if we get enough to muddy the river for the weekend.  As of now, the river is in good shape.

Don’t forget the River Cleanup on Saturday, September 8.  If you can, please come to Lobo Landing at 8:00 am and help clean the river.  

Good Fishing!!
