Some small fish were hitting SOMETHING at the surface. Not sure what these fish were. Could have been small sunfish, or maybe just weird-acting shad? Check the short video below:
Saturday evening I flyfished a local public pond. Fishing was slow, but I managed around 10 Bluegills and one Green Sunfish before dark. The biggest fish was this dandy 9" female Bluegill. Compared to the Bluegills I typically catch locally, this seemed HUGE!
Sunday afternoon I flyfished a different local pond. Fishing was very slow. Geese and ducks had the water around the edges pretty muddied up. I had hoped to catch a few crappies, but only managed about 4 Bluegills. I switched to a bass topwater fly that worked well earlier this year. I caught 3 Largemouth Bass on it. Two were small, the third was decent, but not huge by any means. Good fighter:
There is a smaller pond near this pond. I walked over and started fishing it for bluegills. The bluegills in this pond are healthier fish, if only a bit longer. Also caught a couple bass, including another about the size of the one above. It dove into the weeds and mud, so I didn't photograph it.
I did take a couple pictures of the bluegills. These weren't the bigger ones I caught, but they had good colors:
