Flyfishing 5/7 and 5/8/2014

Wednesday evening I had an hour to kill, so I visited the WDM DMACC pond.  I caught 13 Crappies, averaged 9-10", 2 Largemouth Bass, and 7 Bluegills of assorted sizes.  There were 5 other anglers there using spinning gear.  4 of them were there together as a group.  I think they caught 3 fish between them.  They were loud and competitive (I remember those fun days!), so I could hear when they caught a fish.  The other solo angler did catch a few fish, and maybe even more but I wasn't watching him too closely.
I didn't take any pictures.

After spending the day on Thursday on the White Bass Quest, I felt the need to grab the fly rod and catch more fish.  I visited a local public pond.  It was much slower fishing than my previous 2 trips to the pond earlier in the week.  Somebody else here on CIA also mentioned the slow fishing on it wasn't just me!  :)
I ended up catching 2 Crappies (one I recognized from my last trip here), 2 Largemouth Bass, and 8 Bluegills.

And then I got drenched by the downpour before I could run back to my car.  Once I finally got there, soaking wet, the rain stopped and the sun came back out.  I went home anyway.

  1. Other than getting wet, still some nice fishing for the amount of time on the water. Thanks for sharing your posts as my fishing trips have been a little scare so far this year.
