Fished at Rock Creek today.  The weather was very nice with a breeze from the North.  Wind calmed down near sunset.  Caught numerous Rainbow Trout, Bluegill, Red Ear, several small Perch and Largemouth Bass, and 3 real nice sized Largemouth at 12, 14, 15 inches.  I used a 1/64 oz. round jig head with a 1" yellow or black twister tail.  Also, used a plastic crawdad and Rapala X-Rap with much success.  Water clearest of the year around 8-10 feet in most areas of the lake.

Took along a friend to fish at Swanson today.  We had a perfect breeze from the south and fished in the kayaks just south of the island by the dam.  Water is up from last year by about 3-4 feet.  We landed just one white bass.  I had one hook up.  There was limited activity.  There were several fishermen in waders fishing from the island with bucktail jigs.  I saw only one fish caught from there.  We have a front moving in tonight.  Big storm to the north.  The temps were in the high 60's.  Water about 1-2 foot clarity.  We used the Lytle lure, inline spinners, and spinner baits, along with an X-Rap.  Will try again in a couple weeks after it warms up a bit.

Took two clients to Rock Creek this afternoon.  Wind was out of the south at 25+ mph.  Found some quiet spots to fish for Perch and Bluegill.  Also, caught a 14" largemouth and numerous Rainbow Trout using a Panther Martin Spinner.  Water was very clear with about 12' visibility.  We used small 1/64 oz. jigs with a black or yellow twister tail on the end.  We caught quite a few fish today.  Temps in the 50's to 60.

Fished at Rock Creek.  Did get 4 nice hookups with some big bass on a Rainbow Trout Swimbait.  Did get quite a few Rainbow Trout, Perch, and Bluegill. The water was exceptionally clear.

Paddled the Republican River with a friend during the early evening hours.  We paddled from the Meat Processors to behind the Benkelman Golf Course.  It took a little less than 2 hours.  The water is flowing great right now.  We saw 50-75 deer, Turkey, Ducks, and Geese.  Very nice relaxing trip.  Temps in the low 70's with wind from south.  Watched a storm brew to the north that later developed tornados in the Gothenburg area.

Fished at Rock Creek for a couple hours just before sunset.  The wind died down to a very calm evening.  Caught many Crappie, Bluegill, Red Ear, Perch, and a Trout using a 1/64 jig head and "Food Source" 1" Meal Worms.  45 Total fish caught. Also, just before sunset took after some Bass.  Got 10 in about 40 minutes using a Rebel Topwater popper.  All were over 14 inches with two of them over 18".  Excellent fishing!  Lost around 6 or so as well.  These were some nice fat bass!

Caught this nice 18" Bass today using a popper
