The fishing is great. The last few days have been about as good as it gets. The river is clear with good generation. They are running the generators from about 11:00 am to 11:00 pm each day. This allows drift fishing all day and wade fishing for periods on each stretch of the river except the Ramsey area where the water never quite gets low enough to comfortably wade. The fish are taking sow bugs, midges, caddis emergers and mayfly nymphs. The blue wing olive hatch is starting with some days better than others. The rainbows my clients are taking are good size with some in the slot and some nice browns.
Trevor and Bob had a great time on Monday. They went home tired from catching fish!
A good problem to have according to them.
Barring a large amount of rainfall, this generation pattern should last for the approximately the next month. The power administration tells me that throughout the summer months the generation will depend on the amount of water the White river can accommodate and stay within the gauge at Newport and Georgetown.
The fishing is fantastic so you should be fishing!
The river cleanup will be this Saturday, June 18, from 8:00 am till 12:00 noon. Please come by the Ozark Anger to get your area assignment and trash bags and return your trash to this location at noon and have hot dogs and hamburgers. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
