Autumn on the Lake

This time of year changes things up on my local lake. Most of the big bass go deep, the larger pickerel move onto the drop offs, and trout start moving up into shallower water, particularly near feeder streams.  The perch of highest prevalence seams to start a random trade off between the yellow kind and the white kind. Today it was the yellow kind. I did get a bump after leaving my fly on the bottom for a minute that, given the swirl afterwards, I am certain was a carp. But other than a juvenile bass, only the yellow and green spiky fellows were caught.


  1. Nice sized perch. They like that bug. Nice trip.
    Tie, fish, write and photo on...

    1. It turns out that streamers designed for browns and cutthroat out west will take east coast panfish.
