Friday after work, I fly-fished the upper end of DMACC Pond in Ankeny, Iowa. I hoped to find some trout up in that area, and did see a handful of fish hitting something(s) on the surface, but the water wasn't very clear, so I don't really know what the fish were. I WANT to believe it was trout....but all I caught was 4 bluegills on nymph patterns and gold metallic patterns. The bluegills were fun.
Sunday, I fly-fished for about 1.5 hours at Copper Creek Lake. Passed a couple guys with fishing rods on my way in, they said they hadn't caught anything, the fish weren't biting. It was slow, I caught 1 small bass, 2 medium-sized bluegills, and a 10" crappie:
Around 5:45pm, I hopped over to a local public pond to fly-fish. It was slow, too. A couple guys fished with spinning/baitcasting gear for awhile, and between the two of them they caught 1 bass.
Fly-fished local public pond with buddy Ben. Caught 5+ crappies and 6+ green sunfish, including this one I didn't measure, but its one of the larger green sunfish I've caught recently:
