What a hot, dry summer it has been. Water levels are down in lakes, streams and ponds. This isn’t necessarily good in standing water, but it sure does make creek fishing more interesting. I’ve been hitting the Elkhorn regularly for a few weeks now, and there is some really nice action with the smallmouth going on there.
In an update to the Elkhorn page, I mentioned hooking and fighting something HUGE in the creek a couple of weeks ago. No replay of that yet, but there has been a little bit of action out there. Also, a reader added a really nice update to the Stoner Creek page–that is one creek I plan to get into soon to learn more about.
With September should come more variation in temperature. Hopefully this wakes up the daylight-hours action on the small lakes of the region.
Please feel free to add your two cents on any of the pages–actual user’s experience is most valuable on this site.
