"Get Hooked on New York"

Created By:crazyhorse
Details:Fly fishing for large and smallmouth bass using poppers,terrestrials and sub surface flies is a real challenge on Lake Lillinonah.This lake has 35 miles of shoreline of which only 3 miles is open shore and the other 32 miles is treelined right to the banks. Lilly is a flooded gorge with steep banks and very deep. The overhanging branches,rocks and logs that line the banks makes for some accurate placement of a popper or fly in search of a fish. The water does change in color and clarity so what worked well fishing one day may not be the ticket your next time out. I start with poppers but find that a small immature crayfish about 1" long and weighted works well. I make sure I have plenty of these in my arsenal of flies. Lillinonah can be heaven during the week and often had just about the entire lake to myself but during the boating season weekends can and do get crowded and not fun for fishermen.
