River Bass

I was able to get out and do some flyfishing for the first time since relocating to Ames Iowa for school. I was able to find a lot of public ground around a local river holding a fair amount of smallmouth. The final tally was about 10 smallmouth on zonkers and one largemouth on a popper along with a few more strikes and misses. The weather is not looking good for top water so this might be my last popper bass of the year.
The fish weren't huge but getting out for what could be the last good trip of the year is always memorable.

Nice! I know it's tough to make time for fishing between all those classes and other college activities . Glad you were able to get out and find some fish .

The farther you can cast, the easier it is for a fish to take you into your backing. I seldom see my backing . . .
