Waterlevels in Middlton Spring low ,but when the power dam opens the gates to generate, the water jumps up two feet.Made a great Sat Day Afternoon. Hers a funny story from that afternoon fish a friend two Newphewsand 10year old were fishing theyoungest on my right and the other 2 on my left. The bite was on a the newphews started trash talking to me about catching shad. I was smiling and getting a kick out of this when the uncle spoke out and said no hat but remember boys his Mo jo is strong. The boys were ribbing me about no hooking up for about 10 mins. I was taking a drink and retying my fly combo rig. Steve we got anpother one on,whats wrong, they had hooked up about 4 times each and the young en on my right was smiling and hooking up.Then I cast fish on 9 times in a row, Jeff was laughing at this point .He Quoted. Don't mess with us masters. The ones who were ribbing me in a sqeaky voice , leave some fish for us Steve. By the way Jeffs defenition of a master fisher of Shad . You can fish in any part of the river and catch shad .In my books 15years and the same skiil he's a Master too. S o are his two oldest. I even showed them the secrets of the slot and they have mastered them. I did show the whole group that were ther on Sun am. a 1ft by ft decribition on how you fit the slot, then both times I hooked up at the end.The fly fisher who i fished with on Sat pm said I got it down to a mathamatical formula. I seen him in action. Another funny thing I noticed every time my trucks in the usuall spot local people show up because as it ws explained to me ,If stephen here the shad are here.
