The title was inspired by a tree filled with many early " Christmas Ornaments " . The amount of flies and indicators that have accumulated in this poor tree is laughable ( pictured below ) .
Fished Walnut Creek with perfect water conditions that were set up by the previous days rainfall . Six fish were brought to hand . Two of the six were acrobatic fresh fish from Lake Erie .
Fished Elk Creek with 8 fish to hand some fresh fish mixed with the old tatered & torn leftovers from the October run . Egg patterns continue to consistently take fish . There are still plenty of fish to be had ; although expect icing of your equipment and dress appropriately .
Well it is now December and the weather feels like October ; boy are we spoiled here . Fishing has remained consistent with the each new rain bringing in some more fresh runs of "jacks" from the lake . Expect more of the same this upcoming week as snow/rain is in the forecast once again. Overall pressure on the tribs has been slowing in comparison to October & November. Fish holding patterns are changing with the drop in water temperatures and fish are becoming a little more lethargic . The best bite is usually after 10 AM when the water warms a little ; it seems to stimulate these fish .
