I'm looking forward to this forum as well. Hoping to pick up some info on the selected topic. There aren't many streams, if any,(at least that I know of) on the western side of the state that stay cool enough for trout fishing. If I want to fish, it's got to be for a different species, which I really haven't done.
Its a little late for this but during the whitefly hatch on the susky, the catties cruise the surface enmass. With few bass to target now, I've turned my sights to them. Casting to the swirls and s-wakes, I've caught a few this way. sometimes in the range Frederick shows. Biggest thusfar was bout 24"
Once this year when targeting a bass rise...they are differnet...I went after a cattie bunch in the same area...keep in mind its dark. And when I set the hook, I thought I had a large cattie. I brought to hand a truely behemeth smallie. about 19"
