    It seems like any rain that enters the river to "freshen things up" seems to get the job one. However with water as low as it is, enough rain to cause a sudden jump in flows of a couple hundred CFS is my favorite. Any additional color is even better.

    Dude that is a fantastic idea. You could have one guy shoot the super soaker and the other fishes. Each guy trades off every half hour.

    Daniel,

    Your rookie's log is getting a bit thin in substance. It couldn't go on forever.

    I agree. I honestly can not think of anything to add to it anymore. Thank you for chiming in. I guess.

    There has yet to be a discussion of swinging vs. beads on this thread. That could probably be good for another couple pages.

    No no. Clearly people want it to end so I guess it is time for it to dwindle away.

    Well there you go. Sorry if the thread has been low in substance. I will try to spice things up.

    I am freaking out right now. All the talk about rain in the last couple pages, and now here it is today, and I can not get away from my responsibilities. I am planning on hitting the Sky around 4-5 in the morning tomorrow. Hopefully I still have good chances. Shit gotta tie some flies too. Anyone wanna go?

    You hitting it on foot or are you floating it? - Nevermind, just went back and read the original post.
