Fishing Has Been Pretty Tough

Fishing has been pretty though lately, but there has been action early in the morning and the later evenings. Overall the stripes have slowed down with the surface action, but anglers are still hooking up on the troll and with nightcrawlers on the fly-line. 

The largemouth has slowed down as well with less boils happening but there are windows where they are going ogg after the anti and you can stick a handful. Flukes, topwater and reaction adits have worked best. The good old drop shot has been working as well. 

The bluegill and crappie remains steady with wax worms and meal worms being the bait of choice. There has been a few catfish caught lately on anchovies and mackerel.
