A Fly Fisherman’s Paradise
May 10, 2007
After a day off the water due to motor problems, I was back on Memphremagog with my buddy Scott today. Being a fly fisherman, he wanted to take bass on the fly and oh how he did! Scott had to pick the nicest day of the year as the air temps went into the mid to upper 80’s and the water temps climbed as high as 63 degrees in certain areas. Sunny skies and no wind made this a perfect day to fly fish. We pretty much caught bass in every area fished on jigs and flies and by the days end had caught probably 50 or more smallmouth up to 3.5 pounds. The best areas were the deepest part of the points in 10 to 15 feet of water. Some of the shallower water also produced towards the end of the day as these areas heated up considerably more than the earlier part of the day. All in all a great day on the water!
