The watershed for the Jump escaped the heavy rain that had caused the water to rise on both the Chippewa and Flambeau Rivers, so I made another trip over to see if the fall smallie run had started. The water was low and clear and the weather was cloudy. The water temperature was still a balmy 70 degrees. I saw no indication that the migration is on its way. I did manage to catch sixteen smallies in six hours of fishing with the biggest at 18 3/4 in. that weighed 3 lbs. 8 oz. (pictured above). I also had a muskie that looked like it was around 45 in. long on my bass tackle, but it cut my line after it made a spectacular leap near the boat.
