Time flies….


Late Summer, warm flows have passed…..
We have lower, but cold flows right now. 150cfs lower in the canyon..
Water temps are mid to high 50s.
The last storm, was our first real one, the flows came up some and then dropped back. It was off color, but is now clear again.
No snow in town….in fact, little up high yet. A little over two feet on top of Mnt Rose, and dustings elsewhere.
I have written about the feeling of Fall in the air, sorry for not keeping up the posts here….When it cooled off, I suddenly got busy again…

I realized recently why I enjoy Fall so much…..
It’s due to the rapid changes that take place. Spring comes slowly, Summer can drag on…but Fall is obvious in it’s shift.
Right now, there are thousands of Coots staged up to fly away for Winter.
I only see this once a year.
Robins are acting different, running around in groups…
My favorite bug indicator, the Brewers Black birds have gone.
There are fewer birds when I go to water…getting quiet.
There is a resurgence of Bugs…Oct. Caddis, several types of Mayfly.
Small Winter stones have shown up too.
The days are nice, air temps 40sto 50s…feels like higher.
Some breezes in the afternoon, a windbreaker is a good call.
The fish have been seeing less pressure from visitors, but locals have been after it.
We know that soon it will take some heart to angle in the snow. So, we are getting it while we can….
Hope all my blog followers can stroll along the river before snow fly!
