Fishing the Feeders

Thursday, August 30, 2012 , , 2 Comments

It has been a hot and terribly dry summer. Fishing has been, well it hasn't been the best, in fact it has been downright difficult this summer in Kansas. So last week Bret and I decided to try our luck at Clinton Lake at two of the feeders on a fly rod. At the first Bret hooked into a nice 8 lb Carp and had something break off that was really big and taking line fast. I think he learned his lesson on unnecessary reel palming that day. For me I got a 6 lb Channel Cat. Not a bad start to the day. 

8 lb Carp. Grub Pattern. 

6 lb Channel Cat. Carp Candy Fly. 

What a Cutie. 

After the first feeder we moved to the one by Clinton Marina. This feeder has been very slow lately and on that day proved true to that pattern. We only stayed for a half-hour or so and I landed a small Channel Cat. 

Channel Catfish. Jumping Catfish Nymph Fly Pattern.

Thank you Dave, always a lot of fun. Also thank you again for that jumping catfish nymph fly. I really appreciate that and obviously it works.
