Current Fishing Report May 2019
Central Indiana weather has been all over the board so far this Spring. The annual White Bass run started mid-April and so far, only the males have showed up as of early May due to heavy rain and below water temps. Obviously they love clousers and baitfish patterns, but I learned something new this year, they also love my Carp Duster Fly ! It out fished the clouser on a couple of days.
Mainly our Smallmouth creeks have been blown out and the water temps have been below average. The few times we've been able to get out, the Smallmouth bass have been hitting my Scul-dad pattern as well as my Frog skin colored Hairy Dad flies.They seem to be around wood and large rocks in deep water, and on eddies. Black and Olive colors have been working the best. My olive mud puppy has also been taking smallies and Largemouth, this fly is going to take many fish this year. As the water warms in May they will really start keying in on baitfish patterns.
