More Dam fish 3/3 and WTH


Recommended Posts

The "powers to be"  ran water this morning and shut off at noon. I arrived at the access at 1pm and my friend Scott was already there and suited up. He said the horn just blew... WTH, I said, the water just went down so they must have seen me coming. Well we waited for a while and no water came. He went out and I got ready only to hear the horn go off again??  Ten minutes and no additional water. So off I go. Then Mike shows up at 1:30 pm and he gets ready and while he is walking down to the river the horn goes off again. Well I move back to the bank and again no water comes. 

I got there at 1pm and they blew that darn horn 6 times (about once every 40 minutes) before I left at 4 and no water ever came. I told Mike maybe they were training a new guy how to push the horn button.

With that said the fishing was pretty good. Seeing more caddis and lots of midges on top. Caught some nice rainbows and saw a huge rainbow swim within 10 feet of me. He was at least 30" and I would estimate around 8 or 9 pounds. Never saw him again. Best flies today were pink egg patterns and a size 18 crackleback. 

Here's a couple of the better rainbows...

Those are some great fish.  

Maybe they were giving some school kids a tour - "Hey you wanna blow the horn?"  

It was frustrating because there were some fish rising in the middle of the river and when I worked my out to them the darn horn would blow. That happened twice so I gave up on that idea.

The guy with the job description, "Horn Blower"... he's gotta get bored, right?  Boss was on vacation....So he was probably having the time of his life, just waiting for you to get closer to the middle of the river before blowing the horn and watching you scramble back to shore. 😁

Yea, me and about 6 other old guys. They probably had fun watching.
