Fished Wheeler Monday. Got a late start and fished from 10:00am to 3:00pm.( yeah I know, The HEAT of the day - 90 something ) I found alot of flies scattered here and there, but I think the fish are full of them and maybe tired of them? I tried my fly rod but never got a strike and never really saw any top water action. I did have great sucess on a beetle spin catching several Bluegill and a few Crappie. Yes,Crappie! The fish were chasing small minnows and little fry from the spawn hatch. I noticed alot of the Blugill had sores all over them. I mean ALOT like the measles or something. The worst I've seen ever. Makes you wonder about what's being dumped in our water! Had a good day but man it was HOT. My Lab always goes with me and I thought he was going to have a coronary before I left him get in the water. Good Fishing! <><
