Crappies & Small Baitfish Flies

Crappies love streamer patterns and lures that represent baitfish. TMuncy with a Minnesota Crappie (L. Traverse)

Any pattern that suggest a bait fish or minnows is suitable for Crappies. Flash, movement and sihlouette are the primary triggers to provoke strikes from Summer time Crappies. Yes, the Crappie can be taken with a horizontal presentation. Vertical is not the only way. SwittersB

Fly Fishing Ponds in the Springtime


Tony Muncy

Flyfishing ponds, in the Spring, is a nice respite from the long Winter and the high runoffs of Springtime. The setting is more relaxed. The pace is, and should be, slower; a small puzzle to be solved. The smaller patterns of chironomids, dragons, damsels, scuds are perfect for subsurface presentations. Little poppers and emergers in the film can be productive in the evenings. This is 3 wt. time for smaller species, unless finessing larger bass or carp.

Many ponds are open year around. Weed growth can be a bit much in the Summer, but Spring and Fall pond fishing can be quite rewarding. Docks, rocks and shoreline structure often reinforce the fact that fish are holding to structure and close to the shoreline, as indicated in both of these pictures. Slow retrieves, almost vertical retrieves near structure, will produce fish.   

Tony has had his fair share of bigger fish, but you can see his, and Darly’s,  satisfaction with seducing these Crappie to the feathered creations.
