It was hot last week on the John Day river. The kids spent as much time swimming in the water as they did fishing in it. With low water and a plethora of insects on the water the smallmouth bass fishing was nothing short of ridiculously good! You could literally catch the fish at will. There is something really great about a floating line a stiff short leader and a popping bug. You don’t need to think much about it, just blast it to the bank or the rise, strip it a couple of times and strike.
