smallmouth weren't the intended target but when we saw one near the family property it quickly became it. I started a topic in the rivers section about what I know about them.
14 cuthroat released between 10 and 16 inches. 1 steelhead around 8lbs will also live to see another day. started tossing gold Mepps in size 0. got the first 4 cutts on that then switched to copper for everything else. also tried silver with no luck and the fly rod didn't produce anything either.
saw 2 other guys fishing, 1 had 2 rods which just aint cool. they were drowning powerbait and as far as I can tell got skunked.
popped a whole in my new boots and my neighbors grandson and his idiot friends used my gazebo as an outhouse and left toilet paper and garbage all over which put a damper on the day.
