Here is the third fish in the project that has been succesfully landed. This is our Pumpkinseed, of the sunfish family. A hand tied fly was used for bait, a small woolly bugger. Other baits were presented but the fish only were interested in looking today. This fish was caught near some structure in roughly 10 feet of water.
Pumpkinseed : Lepomis gibbosus
This fish measured roughly 7 inches and was the only succesfully landed pumpkinseed of the afternoon. I did land several other species today including bluegill, largemouth bass, a single emerald shiner, and a quantity of small perch. I certainly hope some salmonids are on the near horizon. All in all a fun 2 hours, got a small dose of spring sun as well. More to come soon.
