Easter has arrived with some beautiful weather in tow. Temperatures in the 70’s with light winds and low humidity. Local rivers are still high due to snow melt and a dousing of heavy rain, but some of the lakes and ponds are fishable.
I put the kayak racks back on the car a couple of weeks ago, and this weekend gave me an excuse to use them. I loaded up, and along with a friend of mine, went to a private lake to practice some early spring casting.
It started out slow, but picked up around noon. Tried a few different flies, but small green poppers were preferred.
Here are a few of our catches.

What kind of fish are these? They look so blue?
My apologies, I’m from Saskatchewan we don’t have fish like these here.

They’re bluegills or bream, a type of panfish. They tend to thrive in warm water, which is why you may not be as familiar with them.
Hope you’re getting warmer weather up there.
