High Water Gilling....Again

Finally have seen the sun after all the rain we have had in the last week.  My oldest son and I decided that we should go fishing this morning, so we loaded up and launched our kayaks at dawn.  Water level at our favorite lake was still about 5ft above normal but we were confident that we could still find some gills.  Caught a few on top water around flooded structure but went with a bead eye dragon fly nymph to connect with the bigger ones…

High water gilling

Went to check one of my favorite lakes this evening as we had some flooding a couple of weeks ago.  Lake level was up three ft but that didn't keep me from finding some of my marked bedding spots.  Paddled back to a nice shallow flat where the water was about 5ft,  The water had cleared up a lot so I was able to see the nice stretch of craters well before I was on them.  Distanced my kayak several feet away and rolled out a cast with a popper dropper rig.  Slurp!!! Mr. Bluegill was home. …

Finally wet a hook!!

With my son's middle school baseball season ending, I actually had some time today to test out a fly that I tied up during the winter months.  Got in from work and loaded up the kayak, grabbed my flyrod and headed to my favorite lake that has a good gill population.  Saw a few surface smacks as I launched so I had a good feeling my fly was going to be met with approval.  Paddled into an area that I knew had beds in the past and rolled out a cast and watched my fly land with a soft splash. …

With the success many of you have with crickets, either fished alone or tipped on a jig.  I decided I needed a good cricket pattern for my fly box.  I had tried in the past to tie a cricket pattern, but was never happy with the profile or proportions.  I have a foam spider pattern that is easy to tie and I thought if I could add some shapely legs, a wing and some markings I could produce something that might pass for a cricket to a hungry gill.  I little time at the vise produced…
