Here's the results of three days of low water on the Chagrin in the Cleveland area. I finally got what I was targeting, that being smallmouth, but the road was rocky and mostly unfortunately dry (the no water kind, not the fly kind ):
Day 1: Lots of creek chubs, hogsuckers, sculpins, and other assorted bottom cruisers. Highlight was a creek chub double. Certainly nothing spectacular:

Day 2: SURPRISE! Low water again. Many suckers and other bottom-feeders again. Around midday I came across a giant school of carp and other bottom-feeders. Here are some results (and what they took), which I believe are a black buffalo (globug) and a quillback carpsucker (pheasant tail), respectively. I could be very wrong here (corrections welcome, apologies for the quality of the second photo, its a still from a video), but they were decent-sized fish and both put a good bend in the Allen Olympic 12' 5wt.

Day 3: Finally success! I had 30 minutes to run out and try to finally catch a smallmouth, and after about 10-15 minutes I got a solid take on a deep-running black Dahlberg Diver. The fish was almost immediately airborne and the spey rod was happily bent. There was much rejoicing. The first photo is another still-grab and the second is an iPhone shot.

Nice fish AJ. Some variety! Something sounds wrong when you say double chub. Haha!

After catching 10-14" fish all day long, I knew immediately that this was a pig fish. My first 20 incher of the season. Took way too long to land though and with very warm water temps I wanted to release it quickly. A couple bad pictures later and he was jetting back across the river into his little undercut bank.

I don't post too often but wanted to share a few that I caught on the fly this past weekend -- farm pond fishin'.

I started the morning with a grasshopper imitation, which landed several small gills:

I switched over to a white foam popper and caught some better fish, still didn't catch any of the big largemouth that live in the reeds.

It was a great morning on the fly, caught many fish but finally the heat won the battle!
