Fished with Jim, Stu and Bob this morning for a half day.  Boy did the catching go to krap.  I’ll blame it on the cold front for the day.  We did get into a few fish on the surface with floating shad patterns as well as with egg patterns but not like yesterday.

Here is some of the latest info on the lake; it’s temps and the D.O.  I took a pic of my computer screen ’cause I couldn’t figure out how to do it any other way.  Courtesy of the Walley Club of Mt. Home.

My friend and fellow guide Brian Wise who guides on the North Fork of the White river up in MO post his Fishadelic Foto Friday!!  His blog and website is to the right.  Flyfishingtheozarks.com  I’m no where as good as him or his very talented wife Jenny but what the heck.  It was a bad photo so I did a little tuning on my mac with this pic.  Gotta do the best with the talent one is given….  But I digress!

. We started out the morning on the surface with floating shad patterns which were a lot of fun. We did hook and land some pretty good looking great size bows that were fat and sassy (term stolen from John Berry) and fought like mad dogs.  It was a bunch of fun watching some great fish take looks and sniff our floating shad patterns with droppers (see gallery).  We did manage to hooks some before lunch and before all the rain and wind hit us.  After lunch it continued to rain (cats & dogs) but… we fished in the heaviest downpours with not much luck until we switched over to midges and eggs. Two brown trout at 16 and 18 inches in two consecutive drifts put some smiles and hi-fives in the boat.  We’re at it again for a half day in the morning.  We are hoping the crowds were like today!!!!  Non-existent.  We’re in for an earlier start in the morning so the brothers Stu and Jim can head back to Atlanta and L.A.

Stay fishy my friends.
