We had the chance to fish a private lake in Eastern Oregon yesterday for LM Bass and Bluegill. To say it was good fishing would be a huge understatement! The fishing was off the chart… I have been working on a prototype for Umpqua for use as a baby bluegill pattern for LM Bass, I think I’v found it, it does need a couple of very minor adjustments, but it fishes so well even the bluegill eat it!! Also note the use of my new pattern with Umpqua coming out in the 2015 catalog, “Hud’s Bushwacker”, this fly flat out hunts! don’t be afraid to throw it into the thick stuff, it fished weedless very well. We took several bass under cover by “driving” this fly down through the weeds into the strike zone with Rio’s Outbound type 3 and 6 sink lines..
