I have been doing a lot of fly fishing below Lake Somerville dam for white bass, hybrids and crappie. The small mouth buffalo stack up thick below the dam. In the evenings they will chase shad and be jumping out of the water like largemouth bass. Twice during the last month I have had them take a fly. Both times it was pulling the fly slowly across a submerged sand bar. I'm using a slow sinking bead chain clouser that remains suspended in the water column when I pull it over the shallow sand bar.
I caught a 5.9 lber last month that I registered for a Yegua Creek fly rod record. Then I caught a 29.5 inch, 14.1 lber on my 4 weight fly rod this weekend. I am submitting paperwork for a new record this week.
