July 17 2012 – Purtis Creek State Park

Took my fly rods out to the lake to see what’s there.  I’ve never fished here, so I just wanted to paddle around and see where everything is.  The two coves right off the boat ramp are pretty shallow (around three feet deep).  I didn’t see any fish jumping anywhere, so I paddled to the opposite side of the lake.  Caught one small bluegill on a popper, but nothing else.

There are lots of trees on this small lake, which should hold some fish.  I’ll go back with my spinning rods later to see what I can pickup.  The lake is no-wake, so I didn’t have to worry about bass boats or jet skis.
