You're outta here, end of season....game over.
The trout lilys and bloodroots are in full bloom and that means are the days are getting long enough to get on the river after work !
The generation schedule has been tricky the past week due to Philpott releasing water almost all day every day to lower the pool level in anticipation of coming rain. So you have to take your best shot at getting in just the right place at the right time.
On Tuesday the generation schedule was 5 am - 3pm then 6pm - 11pm. That left a little window of opportunity and in the evening and Cricket and I took advantage of the slack water to get in a few cast near Rosemont. Due to the water drop time, we would be getting in just as it was going down and still have a couple of hours before dark. We would beat the water rise by 30 minutes if we got out at dark
Cricket steps up to the plate......
The first hook up was an 8 inch little brown right in the deep section....and yes folks...she nailed him on the "red cricket" This little gem of a nymph is still batting .1000 !!!
Since Lisa was downstream from me, she cradled him for a quick picture
A quick kiss for good luck and back in the water it went.
