Default August 31

Waded the Iroquois near Clifton yesterday. Only managed one smallmouth. Threw a jig and swim bait early and switched to a Zara puppy at dusk. Had a massive blow up on the Zara puppy just as it was getting dark. Very exciting to think it may have been a huge smallmouth or possibly a carp that likes Zara puppies. I guess ill never know. Been a tough week. Getting 1 maybe 2 fish for every hour on the water.

Slow and tough has been the trend.

I'll bet it was a northern or a cat.

Stopped by a friends property at Sugar Island this afternoon, river looked really dirty and up a good foot. There must have been quite a bit of rain south. Looked pretty good a couple days ago.

I'm sure things are heating up unfortunately harvest is in full swing and I haven't been out in about a week.

Water level and clarity are about as good as you could ask for.
