    More smallmouth goodness today. Didn't have high hopes today very clear, sunny and windy. But wind abated soon after we arrived and we found a sunny shoreline late in the afternoon that produced really good action for about 2 hours. Caught 6 like this, a few nice largemouths and a lot of smaller fish:

    Just a little bit of wind can make them stupid. Got to love it.

    Anytime it is windy in the post spawn period I love the Rogue or McStick bite. I think the smallies bite the jerkbait better post spawn than pre (of course they are a bit lighter though).

    Wind can be good especially when blowing into favored coves; this time of year the bass can corral baitfish (in our area sawbellies) in those coves and you can see big balls of them even right along shore. Size 2 spinners and spinnerbaits work great. We do well with crayfish imitations also. Plastic worms always perform well but better after the weedbeds fill in.

    And a lot of times the wind dies around sunset and that window of fishing can be ridiculous.

    Agree the fish are aggressive post spawn; you have to be ready to hook any fish that bites at the worm right away or they swallow a lot of hooks.

    Bass, bass, bass. They were really biting today. Went to a different reservoir. Fat Smallmouths:

    Fat Largemouths too:

    And I think this is my biggest smallmouth so far this season:

    As awful as this past ski season was is as excellent as the fishing has been so far this fishing season. Hope it continues.

    Well my wife finished all our casting and entomology classes for fly fishing. Our first trip is the 26th to fish Colorado's trout mecca in the Platte River and later Arkansas River.

    I'm partial to the Frying Pan river near Aspen; great rainbow trout fishery.

    I also enjoyed fishing the Gunnison where you can visit the rim of the Black Canyon.
