I had a chance to do something that should happen way more than life allows, head out with my Dad (or Kevin as everyone else knows him by) and hit the river. He and his friend Fr. Bill Wegher met up with me for a long overdo smallmouth float. The day was perfect with cloudy skies, cooler temperatures, and good numbers of smallies in the net.
The fishing was great, the cigars were smooth, and the beer was cold. What more could you ask for? This will definitely be a day that will stay in my memory for a long time. Fishing with Dad (or Mom) is one of life’s great joys. The time spent with them far out weights any other “more important” things.
The river will be looking a little different with the recent heavy rains. But with the bad comes the good, more oxygen in the rivers, and cooler water temperatures in these hot months. In these hot, low water times of the summer fishing can become a little harder. These rains will help to prolong that early summer like feel to the river. So if you thought the good times to get on the water passed you by, think again. You just got a second chance! So book a trip, get out there and get bent!
