The night was all about wading slow and picking the open spots.
Finally, after hooking and losing 2 previous bass to the lily pads, I was able to drag one through the underwater vegetation.
Last light on the water. Things began to pick up.
With the last light on the water and night coming fast, the bass started chasing and looking up. The action was quick with several fish coming to hand. This one inhaled a Deer Hair Popper.
Switching to a #10 Blonde Foam Butt Caddis as the late light swirls began to look like bluegills in nature, My guess was right. A half dozen fat gills chased down the FBC without hesitation. My last fish of the night was a beauty though, This gill measured 10" lip-to-tail. After that, I snipped my fly and headed for the truck.
A great night, with the lake all to myself for the last 2 hours of daylight.
