The Smallmouth Creeks _ Duane Hada Report

A fine Smallmouth and a happy fly fisher _ Duane Hada pic

Creeks have been a yo-yo lately with mini flash floods off and on. Top water action is heating up with pods of fish blasting minnows out of the water. Cloudy days have been unbelievable for surface action. Good fishing all summer even in the heat. Standing in the stream with 56 degree spring water bubbling up from the gravel is very refreshing on a hot summer day!

Hada Creek Crawlers, and clear water clousers, Duane’s Jerk Minnow, poppers have all been excellent. Big grasshoppers are just coming on in the hayfields along the creek and large hoppers and poppers in yellow color will get explosive strikes. Now’s the time to book a night creek topwater trip with Duane for some unbelievable action.
