Spent the entire day from about noon until after dark fishing.
Got a fat female smallmouth on a blue / white lipless crankbait just crawled along the bottom. Only fish I caught in all that time on anything artificial.
Ran through 45 nightcrawlers and a dozen leeches. Caught a ton of smallmouth, including a nice one about 19" that resulted in my phone going for a swim, which is why no pics...
Got 3 catfish, best one was maybe 4 pounds or so.
Two walleye, both about 15" - wasn't keeping them so I didn't measure them.
Caught some poison ivy on my legs. I think of that as a bonus...
1/2 ounce dipsy sinker, bead, barrel swivel, 10" fluoro leader to size 4 hook. I did experiment with longer leaders, but it produced no increase in either number or quality of bites, and kept resulting in me getting hung up. It appears as if there is a branch in one of the holes I fish that has a gob of line around it as I was struggling to drift my bait with getting hung up in it.
For as low as the flow is volume-wise, the current downstream from where the dam used to be in Lyons is higher than it was when the dam was in place. Which is why I am having to use the 1/2 ounce sinkers - last year at these flows I was tossing 1/8 ounce sinkers, but those are just getting washed up to the bank and snagged still, even when I am using my long steelhead rod to manage the line and current.
