Title: Hot, Low Water, and a Few
Post by: Phil on September 12, 2019, 14:51:04 PM

Fished the S.Fork of the New today around Fleetwood where it's small enough to wade. Low water and VERY hot by 11:00. Dang. We need some rain. I caught about 20 little redeye and 6 smallies, most pretty small. The size of the smallmouth in that area are littler than on up around Zaloo's for sure. Had fun, though! Only took a couple pics --

Nice, I quit around 11 myself, felt like the hottest day of the year and I wasn't able to stand in water  p;-

Looking forward to the PFF, trouts and cooler weather!  0:0
