Soft Hackle fly fishing
I have been chumming the lake in Prospect Park for carp every afternoon.
After I chum I leave the area and fish for panfish. This afternoon I caught this rather large
bluegill ( about 8 inches) on #12 soft hackle. Fishing is slow until the fish become active after 5:00 o'clock
Different parts of the lake produce different fish.
These fish were caught in the area where the carp will spawn in a few days.
On the Lullwater I came upon these two koi sunning themselves under a fallen tree.
Here is a clear shot of a big koi, taking in the sun . The air temperature was more than 75F.
Nearby bluegill and crappie suspended in the warm sunlight.
