Half way thru January... winter is passing fast.

Boated up to the dam this am... crazy as that may seem to be. David Eckerle and I drifted a couple of things, trying a kind of new thing and several old ones. First I slid a plastic trout bead onto the line and tied on a hook, then slid the bead down within 2 inches of the hook and pegged it with a toothpick, broke it off. It was a washed out pink, about an 1/8 inch in diameter (they go by mm but I don't used them enough to know the difference yet). We use them in Alaska and this is the way we present them, fly or spin. Well I caught one on it and David caught 2 on a regular egg fly, yellow. David caught several anothers on an olive 1/8th oz jig. I caught one on a white jig (video). Made 3 drifts to KOA and called it quits. The wind was tough, esp being about 22 degrees out.

the birds were swarming the turbines and outlet #1. Not sure why. Didn't see them pick anything up.

Good morning,

Is the water running all night or are they just running through the day?

I will be coming down in a week with my Father and Brother. I am planning on bringing bass stuff incase the trout have lock jaw. I may be down tomorrow to check out conditions and do a little scoutting. See ya soon.

I am planning on making it down monday through wednesday of next week. Will the water will be back down to a more wadeable level by then? I believe forcasts have the temps up to mid 40s from thursday through next week.

Hmmmm. Now I am stuck on this one. Never had much luck when the dam is running water. I was hoping to get a few days in now so I can still justify the "Guys Trip" in April. I hate to push it off a few weeks and end up with a week where the temperature will be in the teens.
