Details:Very slow day on the river today. There was a lot of water flowing compared to just before the storm and the water temp was down from 76 degrees on Friday to 68 degrees today. I fished hard in all of my usually productive places with my go to lures - a frog popper for my fly rod and a ribbit frog on my bait caster. My friend fished a similar popper with his fly rod and a jointed perch rapala on his spinning rod. I had just one hit and landed a nice pike(lousy pic). It hit the ribbit frog about 5 feet from the boat and just about caused me to soil myself. I saw the strike and it can be best described as deliberate. I was really amazed at how efficiently the pike took the bait. I got him in, took a fast pic and let him go. I neither weighed nor measured the fish, but it was around 28". There is a full sized tackle box behind it for an attempt at reference. The only other action was a lost fish (buddy) on a perch j-11 rapala. We never saw the fish but it took 2 solid runs.

The fish were definitely off today but it was still nice to get out.
