While we were in Iuka swimming, I took the 4-wheeler back down to John’s Branch to see what the flow was like. The deeper pools were FULL of huge bullfrog tadpoles and a large carp. I found a couple little riffles with small darters in them, but they were too small to catch on the hooks I had. I tried to find larger ones, but I mostly caught these bad boys in possible hiding spots:
I started poking around for other fish, and my first one was a new lifer:
I ended up catching lots of fish, probably juvenile creek chub and redfins, as well as a handful of small sunfish.
It was getting close to time to head back, but I hooked one last fish, and another new lifer.
I’m getting a lot closer to that 50 mark!
