GREEN SUNFISH TAKE OVER

107_3640I was up in Fullerton the other day and wanted to do alittle fishing so I stopped into Craig Regional Park to see if I could get a couple of bites. Doesn’t look like the lake has changed much since the last time I was there. Started off trying for a Carp, got a couple of bites but I was too anxious and popped the fly out both times on the set. I fished for about an hour or so and pulled in about 50 Green Sunfish on a hopper dropper system. The greenies must be taking over, I didn’t even see one Bluegill or Bass. Green Sunfish are know to choke out other species, they are more hardy breaders then Bluegill and eat alot of Bass fry. Usually the Green Sunfish in Southern California Lakes tend to be stunted, but these were some of the biggest Greenies that I have caught. All in all I was just glad to get some time in on the water!

    (KI) That’s because the Greenies overpopulate and get stunted so fast. Try this lake out if you get a chance, they have some big ones!!!

    What was your dropper fly and which fly were they hitting?

    Very nice Sunfish for S.Cal! Just curious, what was under the Hopper?

    I use a copper john. It gets down fast and not alot of body makes for a good hookset.
