The climate was quite windy with a chill in the air.

“It didn’t take 5 minutes and Greg was hooked as much as a pleasant striper that nailed the clouser minnow he was utilizing. The second hit was an enormous shad. What a fantastic show they put on. He had me schooled for the primary two hours till I attached with a catfish that made me feel a bit higher. As soon as the ice was damaged I lastly attached with the goal species. Then a couple of small crappies determined to hit my fly. So there have been several first time catches for me.

“There were six species of fish caught in the four hour trip with a few really nice stripers coming boat side and a total of four shad caught with the largest being about two pounds. Great afternoon of fly fishing. Now I can’t wait to get back to the river.”
