Gary with a bit of a Boarding House reach here.
I'm going to piggyback on here with you Jester. I had Gary and Lynn out this morning on the upperend. We were the first boat to the dam at 0700. First 5 passes from the cable to the ramp we averaged about 5 per pass. Nothing big and a lot of the fish we caught were really long and skinny. Hard to believe with all the food coming thru. Most were chocked full of sow bugs and scuds with a round tummy, but not carrying the body mass you would expect.
Didn't see any shad at all and only one gull and it was there a short time, so there must not have been much coming thru. There are thousands of gulls from the Long Creek Bridge to the dam on the Rock, so they are not there for nothing.
Caught most of our fish on a shad fly but also did well on a size 14 Y2K and size 12 grey soft back scud.
Moss got really bad for dragging the shad fly about 9:30, have no idea why but it really started flowing. We drifted out of the zone and down to Lilleys' using the scud and Y2K below the line. Had several more from Fall Creek to Phil's.
