Bluegill fishing at Pleasant Valley Lake
Location: Pleasant Valley Lake
Dry fly fishing for Bluegills in Pleasant Valley Lake at the 4-H Center in Bittinger, MD has been fantastic during the last couple of weeks. My niece Stephanie was visiting from out of state to help out with our Brook Trout studies and asked "What is fly-fishing?" She was soon to find out that evening at the lake, after some brief instructions - she made a nice cast and caught a decent Bluegill on her very first try! She and cousin Kyle caught several nice Bluegills on elk-hair caddis, and these fish put up quite a fight when hooked on the fly-rod.
Pictured is 1) Stephanie with her first Bluegill 2) Kyle with one of his Bluegills 3) and a typical Pleasant Valley Lake Bluegill.
