I landed numerous gills this size today; all were taken using the Barr Nunn popper around the fallen trees in water 55 degrees. The bigger bluegills were still in the deeper water and won’t move into the shallows until the water temps reach the low sixties. A good workout for the 3 wt. 9 ft. and the guy who was placing the popper!!

Making up for Lost Time
This past Wednesday was my day for me to relax and take in the beauty of
I spent the better part of five hours reacquainting myself with my Redington
and exploring areas that I know will hold fish in the coming months. Simply
put; it was good to just be back on the water after a long hiatus. Laura Hill
Laura Hill is surrounded by rolling hills and numerous nooks loaded with sub surface fallen trees; which is the ultimate fish attractor. I got some strange looks today using the fly rod. The lake caretaker told me no one fished the lake with the fly rod. That bit of information really got my attention.
