Liz and I went out on the Springdale pool of the Allegheny River on Saturday to try out some of the new hand poured beavers, worms, and flukes I have been working on. We caught a good number of smallmouth and spotted bass, with a few rock bass and catfish mixed in. Most of the bass came off water dumps, walls, and pillars. They weren’t really active and seemed be holding pretty tight to the bottom so we caught most of our fish dragging beavers or working the drop shot. Liz got all of her fish dragging a small texas rigged green pumpkin beaver with an 1/8oz weight that she named “Squishy”. I got most of my fish on a little hand poured 4″ drop shot worm. The two colors that got me the most hits were the green pumpkin purple flake and a watermelon red flake.
