Went to a local creek for a little fishing. Got there at 11 fished till 12:45 then it got too hot. The first hour the bite
was great, getting hit just about every cast. Once it got to 12, the bite really slowed down. Spent the last 45 minutes moving around trying to find something willing to bite before giving in to the call of the AC. All fish caught on a size 8 hook, corn for bait under a bobber. Managed to get a few pics. Not a 100% sure but guessing these guys are bluegill/greenie hybrids. Maybe some of you guys know.

Thanks for the identification on those guys. Much appreciated...I’m mostly a crappie guy, but I gotta admit it was fun catching those smaller sunfish!

Thanks for replying Laker One! I’ve enjoyed reading your posts, especially the one about Lake Austin. Sounds like I need to give Ol Lake Austin a try. Take care!

Thank you Sir! Hopefully we’ll get some rain this week to keep the creeks doing what they do. Take care!

I love fishing those small creeks, especially in the heat of the summer, as they are usually very shady. I often wade them with the fly rod. There a quite a few around the Austin area to explore. I plan on trying a few this year. The fishing usually slows down significantly by 11 AM on the bigger lakes or rivers but I can often keep catching fish in the heat of the day in those shady areas of the creeks.

Enjoyed the post.
