Warmwater Fly Fishing / Re: How was your year?

My dad has Alzheimer's, so I spent more time doing for him (and mom) than tossing my 4wt. I did manage a few trips to the Eno River...and the elusive Roanoke bass eluded me each time!

I might get an inflatable kayak next year...something to play with and explore new fishing holes.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Peace,

Robert

I know it's a day early but Happy Thanksgiving! I'll be too busy cooking tomorrow to get on the computer. I hope everybody gets to enjoy their meal and if appropriate, the warmth of family presence on this holiday. In the best sense of the words "Get stuffed!".

Through a strange set of circumstance, my wife and I are going to enjoy our first Thanksgiving together alone in 44 years of marriage. That's okay, the family is getting together miles away and wish we were there. We'll be in touch.

I usually have my best luck from around mid-May through the fall.  Depends on how warm the spring is.  Mostly I fish early in the morning before the parking lots get to crowded with other park users.  Over the years I've noticed that once the sun hits the creek, it sits in a valley, the fish seem to turn off.

This may sound silly, but first off, the water you are fishing must have big bream in it. If it does, you will catch them into the summer/fall. Realize that after the major spawn in spring, bream still continue to spawn throughout the early summer and some even into the summer, usually on the full moon of each month. Otherwise, you have to look for them in different areas especially shaded areas preferably with some cover.

I have always done well on poppers through the summer. It is better in the spawn but usually good until the water cools in the fall.

For me Spring is the best time for poppers to catch bluegill.  A popper/dropper combination can be a good way to go(If you make your own, you can create a mono loop at the bend and tie on a dropper with a loop connection.).   Later in the year, and particularly for the larger bluegill, I've done better on something that looks more like an actual live creature.  I've caught some crappy/sacalait on poppers, but have done much better on baitfish patterns.

I've caught some really nice ones on top, especially in the evening, on into the summer. I also use a drop fly with good success if the bite on top is slow.
