Bluegills Bonanza Hyrum 7/28
Late report. But got into some gills Saturday morning with my gfs son. He was psyched to get up early and go!

Anchored up around some wood and jigged. Couple bitty bass and a mess of FAT gills. Some as big as 10 inches.

Had a good fish fry. Off the water by 9:30 and on to gardener's market. Then I played music at a coffee shop that afternoon. Movie night with peanut butter popcorn.

Summer-time Fun-time!




Kept a few to invite home for dinner.

Good for you- Been Hammering them daily- Besides 34 big gills Sunday- also 10 nice trout and 2 large bass. . Go out and talk with Brandon on Xerox. Going to start slowing though I think as far as the gills go.
Monday was a little slower but the bass fishing picked up.

Good report, and pics...esp. fryin' up them 'gills.... I do not question your fish frying skills, but maybe you should explain your tactics with peanut butter, as applied to popcorn....never heard of that! (I am a proud 3 to 4 nite per week devourer of popcorn)....

Were the fish shallow enough to reach with a sinking fly line or better yet with a floating line and popper?

Credit where due, I'll have to check with my girlfriend, the PB Popcorn was her creation. The kids liked it!
I know it starts with an air-popper.

We fished inside of 20 FOW, more like 10-15, so a sinking line should work. A surface popper might likely get attention, but I'll bet it's be more smaller ones at the surface.

Kinda had to hammer down to the bottom to find the bigger ones.

Well, between you and Alan, we found them. Well we found him, and there were fish.

I guess it's been dropping pretty good too, eh?

Dropping fast- better have a good water year this winter . If not Porcupine wont be given as much H2O to Hyrum. Just got back from 3 days on some small creeks in the Soda area. Pretty fun fishing and the dogs found some new places to hunt grouse

Thanks for the input. I took the kayak to Hyrum this afternoon and caught bluegills, largemouth and trout on a black woolly bugger and sinking line. I think a popper and floating line would have worked if the water was a little calmer.
