I tell you what, I have a dilemma. The walleyes are biting, the smallmouth nightbite is great, and the rivers are also fishing great right now. What to do, what to do. This is a hard decision, but I do love to eat Walleye.
Seriously, The White River has been fishing very good, Chip and Brenda from Little Rock were up this last weekend and caught a good number of fish despite the rain. On their second day, Chip caught a very nice 22 inch Brown and also managed a Cutthroat, and lots of Rainbows. He almost got a grand slam, but as a beginning “trout” fisherman, he didn’t quite realize the accomplishment he just barely missed. Raymond and Debbie from Tyler also had a great day with Greg on the White, and caught quite a few fish. The sulphurs are starting to come off, but the water has been running at 5, 6, and 7 units so this has slowed the hatch, but not the fish catching.
I personally have been on the lake, as of lately chasing walleye. I have to admit though, I have actually been catching more Kentucky spotted bass, and smallmouth than the trophy walleyes I am after. I have been catching some walleye, but the large fish seem to be where I am not.
The evenings on the lake have been beautiful though and the sunsets are magnificent with all the cloudcover!
The garden is coming right along and Tina and I have begun to nibble a few Cherry tomatoes. They are always the first to ripen, so I am told.
I wil be back on the lake Monday night with my good friend Irvin, after some walleyes. I think a fish fry is on the near horizon! Tight lines to all of you.
