DSC_0032Began the day by fishing downstream from the ramps at Parker Bend.  Initially tried Rapalas, then switched to spoons.  Had success with silver spoons but the fish were a bit small.  Switched to power bait but the fish size remained the same.  Moved upstream to the 'canebreak', but the bite on artificials was too slow for a fisherman with attention deficit disorder (ADD).   Moved to the closest point where fishing is allowed below the Beaver Dam.  Found that the fish were biting on any colorbait except for nymph grape.  These colors included yellow, salmon peach, orange, spring green and rainbow.  The fish size was MUCH better, although quite a lot of catch and release went on to end up with those in the attached picture.  Another fisherman showed up and fished with yellow power bait eggs with a piece of worm.  His first fish was a just legal brown trout. He was doing good in the fishing arena as I departed.  The morning was clear and pleasant. All that was needed was a few more people fishing.   Generation is scheduled for one hour tonight at 9, at 22% of capacity.  The weather prediction for today promises partly cloudy skies with winds from the SSE at 14 MPH, gusting to 23.  The high temperature today is expected to reach 82 degrees F. with a low tonight of 70.
