Weather has been a little nutty in SE OK, mostly hot n sunny with some random showers and thunderstorms. The river above the powerhouse has been fine. Word from the shop is go small and deep with flies and of course mornings and afternoons are better. It's a little wild and crowded out there right now but it could be worse. The hexes have made their appearance, yay. Lots of other bug activity, smaller mayflies, caddis, midges. Still no luck with hoppers for me. Tried some egg n worm patterns as attractors with about 18 rs2 and baetis. Eggs never got a hit but the worm would get one every now and the, most trout went after the more natural looking stuff. Went to a 16 PT and had good results. 12-16 dries were getting hits. Tried a size 6 one evening and got a two strikes, that made me happy. Probably would have done better with an 8 or 10, so mental note to tie in that size for future reference. Landed some on a zonkers and some kinda muddler thing I bought from the shop. Managed to get a shadow to follow one of my mini zoo cougars, that sure got my heart racing.
Also that thing that seemed like it was following me the one night I'm positive is a raccoon. I saw him all round and fluffy one evening and he moved just like that thing so now I can go back to just being scared of beavers.
