Agnes Adams 1-Fly Bluegill Contest This Saturday

Bluegill should be in pre-spawn mode and are getting close to forming beds, which means lots of great shallow fishing opportunities, and the best time of year to target them on the fly!

Whether you feel like throwing top-water, a nymph, or your favorite streamer, you're guaranteed to have some fast action.  

If you can't decide on a pattern, here are two of my favorites for bluegill. Carter Nelson's SEM Sculpin, and the Chernobyl Ant.

When you check-in, you will give the official your name and your partner’s name. If you don’t have a partner, give your name to the official and they will assign you to a person or persons.

The Fly You can tie on the one fly of your choice and fish it, just that one fly, no other! You can retie the knot but only on that fly. If it breaks off for ANY reason, you are done. No droppers or second
“stinger” hooks are allowed.

The Catch The “traveling plaque” goes to the one who catches the greatest number of bluegill as confirmed by witness who keeps the count. This allows the fish to be released.  We hope to see everyone there!

 Bluegill is the only species that will count for the contest!!!
