Fishing the White River

I had a chance to slip away and do a short float trip with my neighbor Josh on April 24th.  Josh struck first with his 1st smallmouth for the 2016 season!  All up all in we landed and released over 20 fat rock bass and a few smallmouth.  Both of us had long distance releases on a couple of nice smallies; we'll be back hunting for them soon!  I was happy to be back on the oars!

Spring Bass bite is turning up!

IMG_2573Cecil had an opportunity to slip his leash the other day; in fact, he left the dinner table to go and fish!  Fishing in and out of rain storms, he landed over 30 largemouth that were feeding on minnows.  Here's just one of the fish he fooled!

If you look close at the following picture, you'll see one of the unlucky minnows!IMG_2574

WWC is BACK!

Greetings Warm Water Chronicles readers!

We apologize for the lapse of content; someone lost the keys to the website and it took awhile to get a new set of keys cut.  Anyway, the new keys were delivered and we'll be back to posting soon, really, really soon!

There haven't been a lot of changes at WWC; but there have been a few.  While the new keys were being cut, someone left the door unlocked and let a new person in.  This new person will be helping with posting and updating. Just a reminder to our loyal followers, always double check that the door IS locked!

We did appear at The Great American Fly Fishing Expo held during the Indianapolis Boat, Sport and Travel Show.  Our next appearance will be with the 3 Rivers/Fort Wayne Fly Fishing show beginning on April 2nd, 2016.  Come and see us tie!

Below is just a sample of what was being tied at the Expo a couple of weeks ago.  This is just a small sample of the fly's that were coming off the vises of Jr. and Cecil!

Please stay with us, there will be many updates coming soon!!!

Spring Has Sprung

Yes, the trees are budding leaves, Tulips are popping out and birds are chirping all over the place. However, spring has officially sprung when the panfish are hitting on the ponds. Cecil and Don Pendleton both got out and enjoyed some springtime fun this weekend catching nice Bluegill and Rock Bass. Get your gear ready…
