CFS at the dam 1200, CFS at the Pineville gauge 1600 - air temperature started at 34 degrees this morning and only rose to 37 degrees as our high - skies remained overcast all day - winds first thing this morning were light, but that changed dramatically as the day progressed, with strong, sustained, high winds and some really fierce gusts - as a topper, the entire day we had waves of slushy snow or rain move through periodically - despite the tough conditions, we had four tough guests that ventured out as early as 6:30 AM through as late as 1:30 PM - a brace of guests came off the run at 12:15 PM, having fished a couple of hours, reporting 0 / 1 between them; essentially a quick, hard, tug on a bottom-bounced red stonefly pattern that caught the guest by surprise . . . at 2:30 PM our first guest to arrive this morning came off the run - he had swung flies in the lower section without success - the wind was so bad there that he had to wait between gusts to cast in the lulls, until he realized there were no longer any lulls in the wind and he was getting pushed around by the force of the wind . . . a pair of guests came off the run at near 5 PM, having fished since 1:30 PM, in the middle section, "trying everything . . . flies, beads, eggs . . ." without even a tug - have to admire their perseverance under these conditions - the overnight low will be 36 degrees, with mixed rain and snow - the forecast for tomorrow is: Windy. Cloudy skies will become partly cloudy in the afternoon. High 43F. Winds W at 20 to 30 mph. Winds could occasionally gust over 40 mph.
