Do you love big bluegill?
Warmed up after a few days of cold weather, but the water is still very cold. Had to try the new Echo Glass 8'6" 4wt fly rod out, so I focused on catching a bluegill. Wasn't easy, but I finally got one to take a dark brown ant I tied to sink very slowly. First fish on the new rod!
Also got my fish for the month of February, which is tough most years.
Nice ,how deep was that fish ?Sinking line?
Only about 2' deep. I caught it where the spillway empties into a deep hole below the dam. Water coming off the spillway on a sunny day is warmed just a bit (long spillway with very low water flow today), and they sometimes are looking for food in that warmer water.
EXCELLENT CAATCH MIKE !! AND YOU GOT A NEW ROD TO ?? OK BUDDY;; NOW IM JEALOUS !! LOL
