These now "regular" double-peak flows for electricity make me crazy. Dam releases peak at 8am at 2440, then are stepped down to 1180 by 10:30 am, and are ramped back up to 3300 by 7pm! Where I'm fishing 7 miles below, there's about a two-hour delay from dam releases. I see the water drop begin around 11am.
It ended up being a no-CDC day, and a no-Harrop day. That limited my fly choices! By choice. The softies worked well though. Cheap-O's, I didn't even tie. Kinda cool to use shitty flies sometimes. Confidence builder for later. I could see 'em too. The best one was an 18.
