Joe Pool is slightly up after nearly a week of rain. A cold front left the sky clear and the wind out of the north - hardly ideal fishing weather. The sunfish started biting at sunup and for two hours the bite was fair. The fish were on beds in about 4 feet of water. At about 8 AM the wind turned to east and the bite went to poor, but I picked up a few more fish. By 10 AM the sun was too hot for this old man, and I packed up and left.
I kept 14 small fryers. They were all about 6-7 inch fish. There were no big ones, and I threw back a lot of even smaller fish.
