Nicer, warmer weather has settled in at last. Some dreary days of intermittent light rain, and some breezy sunny days...Highs in the 70's. Many Largemouth Bass have started to nest, and will be spawning very soon.
The non-spawners seem most willing to hit topwaters right now...or any fly for that matter.
Crappies have been striking the big flyrod bass poppers. Occasionally one will even get hooked! The males are on nests, and in the local ponds it appears the females may have dropped their eggs now.
Bluegills are making nests. And Pumpkinseed Sunfish are sitting on theirs.
And the baby ducklings and goslings are already out of their nests and patrolling the ponds.
