Thanks! No I was too lazy to wade. I'd been fishing since 6am already, it was about 2pm. And it was too freaking hot for waders. It was only my second time at the Du Page River so not sure what the normal water height is. I would guess it is not low, as it was really high 2 weeks ago from all those heavy rains.

Nice smallmouth. 2 questions, were you wading and was the water really low?

Went fishing with Paul and headed over to the fly shop in naperville afterwards. alas, they are closed on Mondays. Meh. Du Page was between me and home, so stopped off at McDowell and walked south for awhile and fished my way back up.

I could see this guy swimming in one of the pools and he was ignoring my mini size spinnerbait and my twister tails. Tied on a mini hula popper, glug glugged it across the pool and then let it sit. Something swirled at the popper but missed, and I didn't twitch. He came back again and hoovered it up.

Also, a bullfrog swam 8 feet across the pool and ate my hula popper.
