I went fishing with my dad at the L.A. River this weekend.  He was using a 4-wt. rod with a yellow popper and casting above dad and largemouththe tail-out of a large pool.  On his first cast he got a short strike that broke the water.

After a couple of casts, and a nice splash, he hooked into a real fighter.

At first, we thought he had hooked a large Green Sunfish, but after a short battle, he landed this little Largemouth Bass!

  1. Is the largemouth unusual? Very nice by any means. I found we have tilapia here in Idaho, about springs that enter to the Snake R. Still have to find access to them

    • Hi Gregg,

      Yes, that was a treasure of a catch, and I think it will be iconic in years to come. In the only fish survey I know of, commissioned by Friends of the L.A. River in 2008, only one bass was found!

      Next up, I hope somebody wants to post about tilapia.

      Good to hear from you and tight lines, Jim
