It is Spring, after all. And its hard to complain about the rain after the very dry conditions we experienced last year. So...I just put on a rainsuit and go fishing.
I had about 40 minutes to spend fishing last night, and it just so happened to be raining during that time.
The public pond I chose to fish was clearer than some of the other ponds, but noticeably murkier than it usually is. I flyfished, using a chartreuse microjig under an indicator. I fished quite awhile before I hooked my first fish, a decent Bluegill.
Fishing was extremely slow and I really can't explain why, unless the fish were just not in the areas / depths I was targeting. I ended up catching just 4 fish total...3 Bluegills and 1 Crappie. But the Crappie was a very strong 13-incher, so I was every excited about that!
