September 21, 2011 – Joe Pool Lake

Loyd Park – Temperature was 92 degrees at 2pm.  Water temp was 80 – 83 degrees. I missed my first fish on the first cast because I did not set the hook quick enough. I could not find a bluegill or greenie anywhere in the creek.  Bass were everywhere and I found two crappie.  One bass was caught with a silver/white popper on the fly rod.

I lost two road runners in the trees, and had to unhook my popper around four times.  I didn’t catch anything with the spinner bait, but I caught several with a small silver crank bait.  I decided to troll that silver crank bait while I was leaving and caught four small bass on the way to my truck.
