Three Days, Four Waterways, Seven Species

Our week-long three-state fishing trip is off to a fine start, with fish-catching success on the Chattahoochee River, Old Hickory Lake, a small private lake and Center Hill in the first three days. Nathaniel and I fished Center Hill today, and the smallmouths bit pretty well. We spent this morning taking photos and fishing for smallmouths and the rest of the day driving to Arkansas, where tomorrow we'll begin a few days of fishing in Ozark streams.

Thus far, the trip has produced seven different kinds of fish for me: rainbow trout, brown trout, bluegill, largemouth bass, black crappie, warmouth and smallmouth bass. The crappie and the smallmouth were new additions to my 2013 catch list.

Tomorrow we may do some trout fishing in the White River in the Bull Shoals tailwater, and I'll most likely take Nathaniel to Dry Run Creek, the "youth only" catch-and-release stream that he likes so much and that I've often discussed in blogs. Thursday and Friday we'll float the Buffalo National Scenic River! We always enjoy fishing in the Ozarks.
