Last Week of June, 2015

Algae blooms are forming broad mats along the shorelines of many of the public ponds I flyfishing.  It makes fishing and landing fish difficult.  But not impossible.
I've tried unsuccessfully for more Grass Carp.  Largemouth Bass are becoming increasingly aggressive towards topwaters.  Bluegills and Hybrid Sunfish, too.  Some sunfish are still hanging out near nesting areas, but I think the main spawn is mostly over.  A much smaller percentage of the population may continue to spawn sporadically for the remainder of the summer.

Hybrid Sunfish:

A 10" Bluegill!! :
And Largemouth Bass up to 18":


  1. Hi, Dave. Haven't visited in a few weeks so just catching up on your reports. Still seem to be doing quite well. Those Blockhead Poppers that you tied sure seem to be effective for you. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Great to hear from you, Mel! :) Yes, bass sure seem to like these Blockhead Poppers. :)
