This obscene amount of rain we’ve be getting has been making it a little tough to get out and fish. Last week I got to spend a little time on the water. We caught several fish but I’ve noticed the fish are slowly transitioning into there late spring and early summer spots. On the lakes the whites and hybrids are moving out onto the main lakes and starting to slowly school up they’ve transitioned off their spring spots. We found several schools suspended in deeper water. A few of the smaller lakes and ponds largemouth are still guarding beds we’ve been catching a handful of smaller bass but once they’re off the beds the post spawn fishing should start up. The blue gill have started moving on to the banks a few still hanging around their nesting spots, they have been more than willing to eat on the surface this past week making it a blast for the kids. On a positive note with all this rain the lakes and rivers should have plenty of water to get us through the majority of summer once the rivers calm down and they can release water from the lakes the current spots and tailwaters should be on fire.

Spring is Springing

The past week and a half have been some nice relief, 2 weeks ago the overnight low was -2. Water has thawed and fish are starting to wake up. I was able to get out the last couple days and knock some of the dust off, look for the shallower bodies of water they warm up quicker, the fish are still moving slow so you need to move the fly pretty slow. I’v had the most success rolling a Starlite leech on the bottom. If you feel resistance set the hook the take is definitely more of a slow pull than a quick grab. The weather looks like it’s moving in the right direction. I’m ready for the big water to start warming and it’ll be game on. Get out and fish there’s some fish ready to eat your fly.
