Did any one else make it out?
Here in Illinois the opener for the "put and take" inland trout season was today for some county's, the remaining county's will be Wednesday I believe.
I don't fly fish for them on opening weekend that would be potentially dangerous, there are just too many people around for that, but the bite was hot and heavy on minnows using very small treble hooks under a slip bobber. The limit is 5 , I did managed to get mine in about 2 hours, the trout in Dupage county are of decent size, the largest I caught was about 2 lbs, little Cleo's on an ultra light produced well also.
It was a beautiful cool morning, light breeze, and not a single mask in sight. (I didn't bother with the camera this time, you guys know what bow's look like...I hope LOL)
God Bless and tight lines to all.
I cant wait till Monday, that's when the fly rod comes out again.
