All in all, it was pretty refreshing then and it still is now. You hear a lot about advances in flyfishingusually so-called technical onesbut I think the most important change I've seen over the last twenty years or so is that your average fly casteronce a trout puristwill now happily fish for just about anything that swims, with the possible exception of turtles and bullfrogs. ) It's great. If nothing else, having eclectic tastes opens up a hell of a lot more water, and with the sport of flyfishing growing like it is, we need more water.
Often little is done to prevent erosion in these manmade impoundments. On the downwind side of the lake, prevailing winds may create shelves and overhangs that shelter fish. In other cases, erosion may cause banks to collapse, forming shallow areas that permit fish to spawn. For some reason, after man digs a hole, he seems to have a deep, inner need to throw something in it. In many cases, the bottoms of these manmade lakes (particularly mining sites and quarries) are littered with old car bodies, scrapped mining equipment, discarded appliances, and building materials.
I also seek out bays with dark, firm bottoms. Most sunfish prefer to spawn in sandy or gravelly areas, and a darker bay will warm faster than the surrounding lake. As the water temperature increases to the mid-sixties, the bluegills will move to their spawning beds during the heat of the day and back out again when the water cools. When the water is consistently in the high sixties, the fish will remain on the beds and serious spawning activity will begin. While bluegills like a gravelly bottom, they may not be able to get one.
