I hit the slack water above Daniels Dam this morning.
The river has recovered quite well from the floods of a couple of weeks ago-at least in this section well above Ellicott City.
Most of the hydrilla beds that blew out in the flood have grown back and there are several areas where the weeds have matted up on the surface.
The water was stained, with about 2 feet of visibility. Usually, this time of the year it is much clearer.
Today's target was Smallmouth Bass. I caught 5 up to 10" ( which is a decent sized fish for that part of the river) and one Yellow Breasted Sunfish. All on a 1/8 oz. Pop-R, which was claimed by a sycamore tree, just out of reach of my lure retriever.
In the next couple of weeks the river will be choked with leaves, so get them while you can.
