Fishing was not as good as a month ago in terms of numbers but the size was great and better than last year. I've been hearing this on the chat lines as well. I landed at least six LM in the 19 to 21 inch range and ten more between 17 to 19 inches. They are deeper at this time of year. Most were caught with a #4 sink line in 12 to 15 FOW. The Mississippi Maiden was my best fly. I didn't bother to change to another fly although I did try some dries on my other rod to little success. Dennis caught many of his on a brown and black WB. The fly is not as important as getting it down to where they are. I caught less than half casting to shore and slowly retrieving. I did catch several small bass casting to shore which was different from a few weeks previously. This was proof to me that the larger bass had moved to deeper water. The smaller bass felt OK to go after our flies. Before, they would have been attacked. Best fishing was trolling along the dropoff. Sorry no pictures. I forgot my camera.
I got a report that there was some great fishing on the Missisisippi. Won't tell you where but if you can find some places where not many fishers go and near the base of rapids, you should do well.
