Default receding rivers

The past several weeks of afternoon thunderstorms and raging muddy rivers have kept me off the warm water rivers. I was finally able to find a spot where the river was wadable and clear enough to spend a few hours after work. The bass would not take topwater offerings but a heavy hellgramite pattern produced a few dead drifting through a deep hole.
nothing bigger than 16" but great fun.



As always, you can find the redbreast willing to eat.
They love the Tokyo spider Kent showed me at Troutfest. I've been tying alot of them.

Gorgeous pictures, and that smallie is really good looking. He looks bigger then 16" to me, but then again I used to guide so I am adept at over estimating fish size

Those are some pretty fish. Congrats.

I'm going to chase a much less photogenic fish tomorrow, the ole carp. I'll let y'all know how I do.

Hope you do well. I'm taking the canoe out tomorrow on a lake. I hope to find some carp working also.

I got out on Fort Loudoun on Saturday and hunted carp for a couple of hours in a quiet cove. They are so hard to locate if I am anywahere near active boaters as the waves make it difficult to spot the subtle bubbles and mud plume generated by feeding carp. Snapped a huge one off, fought a couple of others for a while, and caught a ~5lb-er. All my fish were hooked on a little brown wooly booger.

Does anyone have an idea when if and when we get a "mullberry hatch" around here? I reckon it would be late summer.
