It has been awhile since I posted anything here. I guess we have been having too much fun. God is good!
We have also been reminded, too often, we live in a fallen world. Jesus said in this world we would have tribulation but we are to be of good cheer He has overcome the world. The reality of being a Christian is that the best is yet to come!!!
I am almost sure Jesus must have been looking over something like this when he reminded us the fields are white unto harvest. (Just outside Cruger, MS)
We have been to Norfork a couple of times in October and November. I think this is my favorite time of the year to go. The weather has been super and the changing of the leaves very nice. Fishing has been hit and miss.
This time of year the lake is turning over and the oxygen level at the dam plummets. The siphon system that provides minimum flow is down again. One of the advantages of the siphon is that it provides more oxygen to the river. They are running minimum flow through one of the generators which only increases the low oxygen problem.
Still a slow day on the Fork is better than average day a lot of other places. Fish move out of the slack water areas and into the riffles and shoals. We have been fishing the upper C&R (nothing new here) and having success on zebra midges, sow bugs and the occasional “disco” bugger. Browns are hard to find “many are spawning in Dry Run Creek. We have been getting mostly bows with the occasional cutt.
Some of the “better” bows we have been catching.
This one is special in that I caught “her” in place I have never even seen a fish before. If there is a secret place on the Fork this would have to be it.
Some other scenery.
