Fishing this past weekend has been a bit slow for this time of year.  The Norfork has been a bit better but also a bit crowded as well.  Rising water in the White is good until it stabilizes.  Rim Shoals is seeking a pretty good caddis hatch until the water hits Rim Shoals and then it pretty much shuts down.  Did have a two boater this past weekend with a great guy from Tulsa Joel K who brought his 86 year old father for his birthday as well as his two brothers Charles and Kent.  Great group and lots of fun.

Got this nice letter from John  THANKS JOHN:

On Tuesday, April 14th, 2015, you guided for me and my fishing buddy, Skip Nichols. Things did not look good. The day before the White had been blown out by rain and high releases from the dam. You mentioned you only caught two fish all day. Skip and I were not optimistic. You decided we needed to try the Norfolk River. You immediately got us on fish. We had a good bite going and then you were notified that the release from the dam was going to stop. Again, not good news. This tends to put the fish off their bite. And the bite was just getting good. You headed back up the river to avoid becoming trapped by low water at the shoals. But Jim, you once again put Skip and I on great fish. Your knowledge of the river, knowledge of the fish and their locations, knowledge of the flies, leaders, and weights, and knowledge of the techniques needed to catch fish was excellent. Jim, I have been hiring guides for over thirty years from saltwater to freshwater, mountains to oceans, Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, Montana, Wyoming, California, Nevada, Florida, and Georgia. I have hired guides in Canada, Northwest Territories, Alaska, Hawaii, Cayman Islands, Bahamas, and Mexico. Of all those guides, you are the best. The skill of fly fishing for trout is important but customer service is even more important. You made our trip a truly enjoyable experience. We will be back. If you ever come to the Houston area for a fishing show please let me know.

John Payne
