Default rock bass?

have any of you ever fly fished for rock bass? Ive caught about ten in the last two days, and they are a lot of fun to catch, especially the big ones!

Hard to fish for them specifically here as the smallies will beat them to the fly a lot, but I do catch a lot of them. Fun little fish.

I don't target them specifically, but I do catch them regularly. There seems to be some connection between them hitting when the smallies aren't...

here is a couple rock bass I have caught. I was with kruggy when he caught that bigger rock bass. have also gotten a few on a black foam spider twitched around submerged rocks. I love to catch then with my 3wt that i use for summer rock bass/gills and smallies. trust me try that brown bugger and also a black or olive one. have caught rock bass on a brown/orange clouser also. I think they love cray fish.

The lake house my friend has up in WI, their property extends to seperate lakes, one private. The private one is filled with rock bass. You can throw a wooly bugger out there and catch one on each cast. Fun to catch.

Whenever I use a stonefly nymph when going after smallmouth, I always land a ton of these. In Kentucky they call them Red Eye or Goggle Eye, but I'm not a native here, so I call them Rock Bass.

The stone nymph in this photo has probably landed 1000 Rock Bass in my two years in Kentucky. Maybe not THAT exact fly, but among my 10 stone nymph gummy flies...
