Big bass? Likely story.

Somehow or another I managed to leave the camera in the truck the last two trips down the river. It’s too bad, really, as I’ve been wanting to get some nice shots of bass to post in the gallery. August is really the beginning of solid bass fishing on our part of the river (Connellsville to Confluence), and these lower flows and warmer temps have really transformed the fishery over the past two weeks. While the trouting is still productive, we’ve spent the past couple of weeks stripping large streamers for large bass. For the most part, it’s been working. Yesterday we had an 18” bass in the boat and at least ten that were 15-17 inches. Not that this is the norm, but the small bass seemed to be in hiding yesterday--no complaints here. Hot flies were large sculpins (4”) in white and tan and hellgrammite patterns.

On the salmonoid end of things, dry dropper rigs with big terrestrials towing little nymphs have been working well. These three fly rigs are lots of fun to cast in the wind.

Crane flies, caddis, yellow drakes, Iso’s, bwo’s, yellow stones, and midges are on the river daily.

So that’s the report. Sorry for the lack of proof in the way of photos, but I’ll tie the camera to myself this week.

Have fun and be safe on the river, and please put ‘em back where you found ‘em.
