UPDATE: 4/20/10 7:55 pm CT
Lots of fluctuation today which added to and compounded the slimy moss accumulation. It can be frustrating to say the least but we deal with it as fishers. The Norfork river is scheduled to be off until 1:00 pm CT on wednesday.
Am out of the fly boxes that we’ve been promoting at the moment but have another 2 cases on the way. Will update when they come in.
These guys are hard to come by on the White River and all of last year I had some fisherman catch 3 for the entire year. This past sunday Jerry from Sikeston caught two of them in consecutive drifts in the same spot.
Mostly we were using a shad type pattern and the fish were all over it. On monday the same pattern worked but not as well. The river continues to be mossy and the further down one gets the worse it is. Flows are steady at 12,300 with some fluctuation down to 11,900 during the early morning hours. The generation schedule for today suggest 170 MW which is roughly 11,900 CFS according to my calculations. These fish are holding tight to the bank and in some areas of the river you can see them. In Newlands hole on the left bank take a look behind the new dock and you can see a bunch of them. Looks like the weather is going to be good today with highs in the lower 70’s. Wednesday brings a chance of thunder storms with a 40 % chance. Thursday also brings a 40% chance of rain.
