Floated it with Bowdy yesterday. First time he and I have fished together and it was a pleasure. Good fisherman, Loves to work the water, new to the river and just soaks up any and all info that you will share.
First off the weather. WOWOWOWOW. Shortsleeve shirts, just enough breeze to keep the bugs away.
Water. Yes it is still way HIGH but it is not ripping down the river like I thought it would. It is about mid july speed not mid june speed. Not real clear but you can see the bottom when in 3 feet of water or less.
Fishing. The reds are not stacked up in the upper yet to much above windy corner. Below that the mass red swarms are starting to form. We only had about 5 hours to fish so we worked the glory hole first. 1 nice dolly landed there and a couple of fishes lost. Moved down to whirlpool and 1 little dink in the upper end of the back channel there. Moved down to 100% and popped a little dolly and a bow. Stopped at last chance and lost 2 small fish and Bowdy lost a nice bow. Pushing the 20 range.
Either way it was a great day on the water. Nice to see the red swarms forming. Not really bedding up yet. Just the big masses in the water still. Bright red, no white on them. No carcasses in the water at all as im sure what ever there was in there got washed out.
