Went to Pella again today, fished from 530 till dark. Me and the gf caught 20 bluegill, of which prob about 5-10 which were keeper size 6in+ also caught a few nicer perch, but no bass. Didn't see any cruising the shallows either. Regardless the bluegill where fat and fun to catch. I'll be back next week.

where is Pella?
In longmont off of Hygiene, not sure exactly, but maybe check some of the other pella posts.
I caught the bluegills on flies behind a bubble, hope that helps.
Ive never fished that way before. What type of fly and how long is the fly form the bubble?
You rig it so there is a swivel after the bubble and then it's whatever length you prefer, i usually do it about 4-5 ft so that the when you real you get some action on the fly, and then i just use about the smallest flies i can find, sz 18 or 20 i think, mosquitos or anyother pattern like bugs flying around pella
I always feel a little silly just catching those tiny little bluegill, but the fun of being able to pull in twenty or thirty in a short time makes up for it . . .  I have found that a #12 little white fuzzy fly of any sort gets their attention fast.  This time of year, I don't even retrieve it except to straighten out the line.  Let it sink, they grab it.  Fun.
Update: went out today with granddaughter; she had a ball. We caught ten or so bluegill apiece, three very fine perch (about 10"), and one lonely little just-past-fingerling bass. Great fun.
