I went out to Buescher State Park with a fellow fly club member on Sunday. We fly fished for sunfish and bluegill from the kayaks.

Buescher is one of my favorite lakes to fish. It is a very small lake with no motorized vehicles. It is very similar to Lake Raven. Both have very big bass and big bluegill populations and are easy to cover in a kayak.

The bite was slow and I think the recent cold front had pushed them back a bit deeper. I tried a number of different flies and ultimately ended up using a size 12 yellow briminator.

I caught only 4 bluegill, 1 bass and a redear but one of the bluegill was big enough to submit for a water body record.

It was 9.5 inches long and weighed 0.70 lbs.

They are great fighters and the biggest of the sunfish family. I've had better luck finding them in small lakes and ponds than bigger lakes. Particularly since I fish with a fly rod in shallow water most of the time. They tend to be a little deeper and like live bait more than most sunfish as well.

Thanks for the comment, hope you find some soon. Be sure to post and let us know.
