Now that school is out for summer, I hope to be able to sneak in a few more fishing trips between “honey-dos” and music camps. I fished Lakes Cotile and Valentine earlier this week with my friend “Catch” Cormier in hopes to land a real trophy bass on the fly rod. All I managed were a couple of sinks and some tiny bream.
This morning, I got up early and headed out to our neighborhood lakes. I caught 4 bass on a variety of flies. The largest came one a crappy candy while I was fishing for bream. The bream bite hasn’t begun yet and I just can’t figure it out. I’m planning on hitting some new spots to see if I can get a bass entry in the Massey’s Tournament.
I was the guest tier at the Kisatchie Fly Fishers Meeting this week. It was great meeting some new faces. I hope those guys are able to catch a lot of bream on the slow-sinking spiders I showed them. I was able to catch about a dozen small ones this morning on the spider, but I’m still waiting for the bull bream to start eating with reckless abandon. 🙂
