So good to be fly fishing again after being cooped inside most of the winter, my destination today was
With the daylight hours being longer now I knew I had some extra time this afternoon to fish some areas on the lake I normally don’t fish. So I trolled the 10 ft Pelican towards the back of the lake to fish some of the shallow water in around the main creek that flows into the lake. After a half hour of working the creek and the surrounding area with no takes I moved backed into the nooks. I know this may sound crazy but landing a fish this afternoon was kind of secondary; just being back on the water for another bluegill season is tremendous for me.
First bluegill of the afternoon, not a counter but loads of fun on the 3 weight.
My one and only counter on the 4 weight using the black grub
All the fish I landed today were in great shape and ready for the coming spawn. Even the Betts Popper got in on the action later in the afternoon.
So with my one bull bluegill counted I am now 49 away from my quest!!!
