Well, fishing wasn't bad on the south-east side this weekend. We landed 8 with the largest at 25" and a couple of eaters. Fishing the gravel seemed to produce better. Water temp was up around the 54 degree mark. All of the fish were caught between 15 and 20 feet using crawlers and leeches on lindys with either red or plain hooks. We graphed a lot of fish, but they were scattered. In fact, we never saw more then 2 or 3 at a time on the graph. They were moving all over the place and we had to move with them.
If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
