The first time I fished the Flint, i was using a small yellow boogle bug popper. The fish immediately were very aggressive in taking the popper. Almost every single cast, id have a bite, even though the fish were very small, it was fun. The fish i caught were all sunfish; longear, redbreasted, green. Most of the fish were less than a pound, but a few were of pretty decent size. One which was roughly 3-4lbs! (estimation... It was pretty big though)
Now, the Flint has become one of my regular fishing spots that i always look forward to. The only two bass that I've caught on the Flint were two Redeyes. They were of decent size, and they both put up an incredible fight for their size. Ive just started trying to see if i can snag any carp in the Flint, not sure if there are any, but its worth a try!
- 5-7wt rod. -- most of the fish are pretty small, so if you want to have a better fight, I'd go with a lighter weight rod.
- Flies: small poppers/divers/sliders, chernobyl ants, basically any terrestrial fly will do. I've also had a lot of luck with trout dry flies.
