Often get queens taking laying breaks when little forage about, usually late summer here,before they start laying in their winter bees. Uncapped queen cells though means something totally different.
My hive #1 seem to be preppers, they always have some empty queen cells laying around. I wonder if they're dropping a hint, or what.

The problem I think is that because the water level is so low, the water temperature is too warm, and then the trout are stressed and don't want to eat.  You always hear that the technique on a low water day is to fish the deep pools, and some days I see trout in the deep pools, but they just won't bite.
As I said earlier, there reaches a point where trout won't eat anything but a fly. I took my nephew fishing with me a couple of times in NY and he taught me something that you might want to try...He made a float/weight out of a dried stick and tied a fly onto his casting rod and tossed it out and fish hit on it. Since you know what those pools are and where they are, you'd have nothing to lose by trying that method.

Oh, and stand upstream of the hole and let the current drag your rig down into it.

Is its name Pat?   :cheesy: SNL is missing out on a great opportunity to be funny again. I know that they think this DEI garbage is all fine and dandy but sooner or later, the facts had to smack them in the face. Pieces of corporate America are starting to see the errors of that ideology but let's hope that our military sees it before one of our enemies shows it to them/us. The fact that those who fumbled that ball that badly are still in their positions is a bit concerning for me and this is a case of them being too stupid to see that they're stupid.

"My name is nobody" with Henry Fonda and Terence Hill.  A lot of literal clowning.  Clowning, for those who have never thought about it, is about incongruity and this movie is full of that.  It's why clowns are scary.  They mess with your sense of reality.  A typical clown has a nose that's too big, too red, feet that are too big and, if they are good at it, they do things that are incongruous.  Jackie Chan is a clown.  He does things that are incongruous all the time like run up a wall or have a fight with stilts on...

You do know,... that's a guy,... right?
I know I'm not interested in it, whatever it is. I assumed female, but don't care beyond morbid curiosity. I ain't no newbie sailor in Hawaii, if you get my drift. 

It's the same one that couldn't holster the pistol at the load-up(your top pic) .. crouching behind the other agents and trump when he/she/it was on stage ... I want to call it queen balling him since this is a bee board  ... and that ... brings many things to mind that seem funny to me that I dare not post ... especially in the context of DEI :shocked:

sooo ... is it a guy?  .. you checked ?  :cheesy:

WTH !!! ? BIRDSNESTERS ?

Thou shalt not disparage the baitcaster; for it is good.
It marks the fisherman with flattened thumb and smooth callus. It layeth the lure between  knees of bald cypress and under the low hanging boughs.
By it's grace, the rod is imbued with accuracy and range. By it's strength, the largest of fish is hauled in. By it's simplicity, it's user becomes skilled. For the line must be felt as it feeds out, lest the cast go awry.
And Yea, though you might venture into salt water, it remains unvexed by steel leaders and heavy lures.

.... pretty sure that's in the Bible :wink:

Fish are always there unless they've been fished out. Trout like cold water, bass like warm water. Try no sinkers and stand in the middle of the river and let the current take your crawler out. After it's out as far as you're willing to go, slowly bring it in and work it to entice the fish. I use spinning reels and don't know how well that would work with a baitcaster. Why do they call them baitcasters anyway? They should call them birdsnesters.
