High waters and intermittent rains.

Had a chance Saturday to float the Beaver Tailwaters in a canoe my buddy Alex made. It’s homemade, handmade out of wood from designs he compiled from different internet sites.  Pretty nice piece of art and functional as well. I couldn’t believe how many people commented on the boat and had several conversations about boat making. 

The waters are high right now. All the lakes are near capacity, but with flooding down river near Calico Rock area after the Buffalo River dumps in, the lakes aren’t able to release quite yet. Wade fishing is very limited right now. 

Fishing was slow at best. Was able to catch a few on peach and olive micro jigs and one each on a purple midge and P&P midge. There was threat of rain much of the morning, but we didn’t have any on our outing. The wind was strong from time to time making it difficult to drift fish and when we did anchor it was still tough to cast effectively. It was great to get out and explore the water and take an overhead look at the spots I catch fish the best at. Great time on the water!

Happy Fishing and Stay Trout Tough!
