Evening Fishing on the Ottawa

For those that didn't make it out to Thursday's Evening Fishing you missed a great evening on the water. Current water conditions are near perfect for the Bate Island area, with the south channel flats being productive as usual. Around 7pm the daily emergence of large spotted sedges (caddis flies) made for some enjoyable topwater action, with bass rising everywhere to take in the feast. While the sizes were relatively modest, the constant action more than makes up for it.
