Went out today to take some pics before the wind blew all the pretty ones down. Yesterday was definitely the peak as far as colors but it’s still beautiful out. It’s sad to see the foliage leaving us for the winter but they’re making a grand exit!

They’re running 25 megawatts, level is 703.5 feet. That’s just 2 feet up from when it’s off. I managed to get my Grizzly up to Rebar stump without hitting anything. Couple of guys wading out on the bar were catching a few.

I found this dead brown on the bottom. Note the fly in the dorsal fin. Hard to say why he died. I’d say 21 inches long.

Caught a couple of rainbows on a #16 Rusty midge in the eddie against the south bank there. Then drifted down and caught a few rainbows on a 3/32nd ounce black/olive jig.

Stopped in front of the club house at Trophy Run. There’s a shallow shelf on that south bank the water runs over and it hold lots of rainbows. I put the boat against the bank and drifted the Rust midge through the area catching a half dozen nice rainbows.

Drifted on down using the jig and caught a couple more rainbows. Ran down below Lookout and started again throwing the jig, this time a brown 3/32nd ounce.

Did good! Rainbows liked it down there. Caught a dozen and some were pushing 18 inches. Wind picked up at the lower stretch so I called it.

Got some nice pics. That was the REAL reason I was out.
