The generation remains about the same with a small amount early and the main generation coming in the afternoon about 1:00 pm.  With the fog and a slight breeze in the mornings the fishing has been pleasant until about noon.

With various small hatchs on the river, there has been some success with dry flies.  Small Elk Hair Caddis and small Hoppers have been taking trout.  If you're in an area where the trout are rising you might give them a try.  Also, Griffins Knats and Adams are good choices for trout taking midges.  Nymphs are still the most popular with sow bugs and Prince Nymphs a good bet.

I have had some good reports from the area at the dam with wading possible about an hour after the morning generation until the afternoon generation starts about 1:00 pm.

We had a shower this afternoon and the temperature dropped into the 80"s.  The forcast  for the weekend is for temps in the 90's.  This might seem like a cool snap compared to the last few days.

Don't forget the river cleanup is Saturday, September 11.  Volunteers will meet at the Ozark Angler at 8:00 am and get assignments and return at noon for a free lunch sponsored by Trout Unlimited.  Come and join us and help the river.  If you have a boat please bring it.

Good Fishing!!!
