Default Re: Chubs????

We have 'creek chubs' around here, but their larger cousins the 'fall fish' are more common.
They'll take any fly that a trout might and more.
I gotten them up to 14 inches

I've caught Fallfish up to 20" in the Susquehanna. They will attack any streamer size 4 or under with gusto!
The Fallfish are overtaking the smallmouth bass in the Susquehanna river. That's OK with me...... they are wonderful to catch on a flyrod.
Carp and Cats with my 8wt and Chubs and Rockbass with my 5wt!
That's fine with me. All the Smallmouth could die in the polluted river, but if Chubs and Carp remain....... well, so be it!
I'm just very careful not to get any river water in my body! A good soapy shower should wash the E-coli off when I wet wade. If I accidentally drink some river water, I'll just quickly go to the Hospital for some shots.
My how the freshwater streams have changed in the last few years!

There's a tidal stream one mile from my driveway, and I feel the same way.
I actually duck during casting to avoid any drops of water hitting my face. The local kids swim there all the time, however, and
kayakers come out of that section soaked head to toe. I dunno.....
