John Day River Fun in the Sun

IMG_1263

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.
