Was bout to go fish below the dam with my corn and 1/0 size single hook with 5 or 6 kernels on it shaped like a "J", \:D when i found out the oriface is going to be delayed for a month. I was expecting some huge 2 ft long rainbows immediately after they installed the tubes, but i guess im goin to have to wait till next month!

Yeah, I just heard about this. Kind of sux. I guess minimum flow will have to wait. Maybe by late August, we can get a sluice on top of a minimum flow, and the feeshies will get fat and sassy.

I think it will help the fish out this winter. I would replace that corn with a fat brookie though. \:\)

Cool pic.
The rumor is that they were supposed to put the oraface in on Tuesday. The crane lowered it but the cable wasn't long enough. Somebody screwed up a measurement somewhere. Don't know for sure when it'll happen.

Heard on the radio the same thing gil. Lowered it down, cable not long enough, raised it back up. They will try again next month. I'm sure someone felt foolish.
