Fishing The Hopper

I just canít stay away from those gills. I spent the better part of the afternoon, on Walker Lake today landing bluegills and spots. I was fishing right before a front, and with the lake stable it made for a great day. The hopper was the fly of the day for me helping me land 9 nice gills in depths of 10 to 12 ft. I fished most all afternoon with my 3 Wt. rod and had some awesome hits.The only time you can catch the big bluegills on this lake with the fly is on cloudy days or when you can find them in the shade. Today was one of those days.
Patience is the name of the game on this lake. I would leave the hopper motionless for 15 to 20 seconds at times before I would get a hit. When I did get the hit it was worth the wait.
