The river remains clear but running high for most of the day. With the White River falling below the 21 feet gauge at Georgetown, the Corp has increased generation to about 14 hours a day. The forecast for the rest of this week is for a good chance of rain and colder temperatures. We’ll have to watch the amounts of rain and hope that the lake does not get too much into the flood pool, which will cause the heavier than normal generation to continue.
The bite remains fair to good in the mornings ahead of the new generation. The warm weather over the weekend and the first part of the week caused a few caddis to hatch on the lower river. We have to remember it’s still February but it shows what a little warm weather will do for the insect activity.
