Lake Pocotapaug Multi Species

This afternoon felt like a good one to try out the new fly line on some big water carp. I geared up and hit the water, where I found a very happily feeding carp. He was quite large. Unfortunately he spooked and left in a hurry, forcing me to target smaller fish.

Nothing gets my heart pumping quite like a 25 ponder kicking up a nice mud cloud.
The next fish I saw was a Smallmouth, and he nailed the fly with precision. The fight was short but full of acrobatics. I continued on to catch Smallmouth, Largemouth, Pickerel, White Perch, Yellow Perch, Bluegills, and Pumpkinseeds. That leaves three other species that are fairly catcheable on flies: Carp, Rock Bass, and Walleye. Hey, I've even seen a big Native Brooky come out of that lake.


  1. Nice catch. That lake holds a lot of fish. Wish I were there to share the catch!
    Fish on...

    1. It is a rich lake despite of, or perhaps due to, the algae blooms
