750 CFS Dam Release

April 6, 2022

Blindsided by a 1900 CFS release this morning, needless to say, things were pretty quiet on the run. Most likely in anticipation of the few inches of rain we have forecasted.  A couple of anglers whom had traveled a distance to get here, certainly made the best of the situation by sticking it out on the water for a majority of the day.  Weather was pleasant! A bit breezy but, good overcast, and comfortable temperatures.  There was no reports of any fish being brought to hand today.  With higher water, things are definitely tricky.  It'll drive you nuts trying to get a good drift in some of the juicy slicks and edges you, just out of reach to get it right.  Presentation at these levels is definitely tough.  No doubt about it.  But, there definitely remains fair opportunity even with all of these limitations.  With fish pushing to the edges, it's just time to look in the spots you wouldn't have looked before.   I'll reference yesterdays post. Would fishing even be fun, if it weren't for all the adversity and challenges we face as anglers?
