December 11, 2022

CFS at the dam 750, where it is scheduled to remain through midnight tomorrow - CFS at the Pineville gauge 1020, where it remained throughout the day - air temperature started at 32 degrees, gradually rose to our high of 36 degrees, then slowly dropped back to freezing - an overcast day, with periodic flurries of fine grained lake effect snow moving through - winds were fairly light - we had a total of 34 guests who joined us on the run today, starting at our opening time of 6:30 AM to as late as 1:45 PM - the first three guests off the run, just before 11 AM, reported no success after a few hours on the run . . . thereafter, the reports were essentially feast or famine, with approximately two-thirds of our guests reporting numbers that ranged from "one", "handful of fish", "did alright, got a few", "quite a few", through (for one lucky guest) "high double-digits" . . . most fish were in the 6-8# range, with a few larger, and were a mix of darker and fresh chrome - the common threads in the reports were that no one area produced any better than another, fish were holding in fast water, bottom bouncing egg sacks worked very well, drifting egg patterns and beads under a bobber or indicator also worked well, and the afternoon bite was better than the morning - the remaining third of our guests "got casting practice" and "more experience" but enjoyed the outing nonetheless - tonight's forecast is: Low near 25F. Snow accumulations less than one inch. Tomorrow's forecast is: Partly cloudy skies. High 31F. Winds N at 5 to 10 mph.
