I went there Sunday morning and it was off the wall. 63 degrees, cloudy overcast bass catch'n skies, light breeze from NW are you kidding me. ...and I'm the only fisherman there all day? WTF where are all of you fly fishers...must be still in the closet! You could not find a better day to be out on the water considering the all of the bad weather we have had lately. Then the skies cleared off and the bass were jumping three feet out of the water to catch dinner. I caught two in mid-air! The bream are getting ridiculously huge too and they will outfight the LMB! Caught one bass that had a dragonfly half down it's throat see the picture below. Caught half a dozen golden-throat bream and probably 30 to 35 bass of all sizes to 2.5 lbs.
My drop in point. You can tell water is up about 18 inches.
Flooded shorelines looked inviting don't they?
Very Calm conditions huh!
I got on the water around 8:00 am first fish again on first cast. Seems to be a resounding theme on this body of water. I started out with a small #8 firetiger popper boom fish on!
This one flew out of the water two feet to hit my popper.
Plenty of salad around too.
Here is what they are eating.
How beautiful is this little guy! Man they fight so hard on this little three wt.
Believe it or not this one is not the same as first picture. Nice huh?
