Unexpected Fishing Delays as
Table Rock Shuts Down
As a tribute to just how unpredictable the Corp of Engineers can be about Table Rock, the last few days have seen no generation at Table Rock Dam until 2pm. What surprised me is that Beaver Lake is pretty high, and all that water will have to make it through Table Rock Dam at some point, but Darren and I were too busy catching fish to ask questions as to the ‘why’ of this situation, so be sure to check out the videos of the experience on my site. I would tell everyone to get down here NOW, but if I did that, the conditions would surely change.
We landed over 200 fish over the two days – it was pretty much a bite on every cast on standard midges during low water. While that whole deal was a blast, when the water did come up, we were treated to a dry-fly extravaganza on size #2 “Behemoth” patterns imitating the many wasps we see this time of year. The far bank opposite the hatchery was on fire with big rainbows [fish over 20-inches were common] aggressively smashing these oversized dries. I wish I could say how long this respite from continual water will last…I’m afraid it could be one of those “should have been here yesterday situations”, but I sure hope not.
Since Darren and I are on the water so much, we’ve decided to also utilize “live” reports that we record on the river. Please let us know what you think of this format compared to strictly written reports – hopefully a combination of both will enhance the whole Internet experience. I haven’t forgotten about the newsletter, and subscribers should look for the newest edition within 24 hours. We have an amazing special this month that combines fishing two rivers and FREEE GUIDE flies – be sure to check this out, as this offer is good for subscribers and non-subscribers alike.
