And third, I've been sneaky. To make very sure that you don't rely too heavily on the information presented here (as opposed to assembling your own), I've deliberately used fairly large temperature ranges throughout the book. Local conditions and the likes and dislikes of individual fish make any information in any book a general guide, not a message from on-high! Now let's take a look at our first beyond-trout species, the ubiquitous sunfish. Page 17 TWO SUNFISH Many years ago, on farm ponds and lakes within bicycle-range of my home in Texas, I cut my flyfishing teeth on sunfish.
In some areas, bluegills may spawn from spring to late summer. Small bluegills feed heavily on insects and small crustaceans, such as scuds and freshwater shrimp, and can be found in the shallows during most of the day. Large bluegills prefer meatier stuff in the form of minnows, small crawdads, and leeches. They're more likely to be found in deeper waterbut still often within the reach of fly tackle. Although bluegills are very adaptable, as demonstrated by their wide distribution, they like clear water when they can get it.
With your depth limitations in mind, it's time to consider the lake from the perspective of the fish you're pursuing. Steep, rocky areas may hold smallmouth bass, while muddy bays with lots of weed cover may be good places to check for northern and largemouth. I'll discuss suitable habitat for individual species in the chapters that follow, and I'll tell you when you can expect to find them in that habitat. Page 3 As you learn the requirements of the fish, you'll know what kind of habitat you want to fish.
