Bass fro chop - Not sure what the best fishing flies are for bass. But, what I have seen work at Bethany has been Black and Red Zonkers, a Purple Zonker, and Black Woolly Buggers.

Will post a picture of a Black and Red Zonker on the link below for your reference.

Fished the Bethany Lake's Back Pond in the afternoon. Warmer than this morning with a strong breeze blowing.

Caught small Bluegill and two Bass using fishing flies. Fish were active, hitting artificials on the surface and below.

FYI - Observed two 2 lbs+ Bass in their spawning bed. Shallow water - less than 2' deep.

Checked out two ponds that the team has not yet fished in Allen.

First was Glendover Pond - small neighborhood pond ~ 1 acre in size. Located at the intersection of Glendover and Scottsman.

Second was Auburn Springs Pond. Actually 2 ponds located off Angel Parkway and Auburn Springs Road and east of Celebration Park.

Promising locations. Had trouble casting with the strong wind but did manage to hook a couple of Sunfish in the feeder creek at Auburn Springs.

Posted pictures of the ponds and fish in the link below.

Fished Bethany Lakes' Back Pond this evening. Started out slow with no strikes for the first hour. Was trying to catch Bass lurking in the shallows.

Switched to catching Bluegill using a Brown Dryfly. This worked as the Bluegill fed in the shallows. Then, changed to a Foam Rubber Spider when the fish started hitting on the surface. Caught more Bluegill(pictures posted in link below).

As it got dark, did have a Bass strike the Foam Rubber Spider but failed to set the hook. Nice evening with much calmer wind than earlier in the day.

Checked out Suncreek Pond, a small pond at Suncreek Park in Allen.

Caught small Bluegill and Sunfish on flyfishing gear. Should pick up as the weather warms and the fish begin nesting.

Fished the early morning at Bethany Lakes. Caught Sunfish and Bluegill mainly from the Feeder Creek with a few taken in the Canal and Lower Pond. Lost a small Bass in the Back Pond, else no others observed.

Cold morning with a moderate breeze. Fish were caught using a Peacock Herl Nymph in size 12. Pictures posted.

Fished Lake Lewisville at Little Elm Park in the late afternoon Saturday. Observed a fair amount of fishermen but only few catching Crappie using minnows from the bank.

Fished the shallows near the flooded treeline but was not able to get a strike. Crappie were chasing baitfish occasionally; just could not get them interested.

Fished Bethany Lakes' Back Pond for about 45". Caught Bluegill and Bass despite the strong wind and cool temperatures.

Fish were shallow and caught using a White Foam Rubber Spider or a variant of the Clouser Minnow in blue and white.

Fished the ponds at Colleyville Nature Park this afternoon. Water is still pretty stained from recent rains. Only caught 1 confused bass on a live worm.
