What to Expect in May
Hatches divided by half-month.
Super Major Minor Slight None
Bass fishing can be slow while the water is warming up, but it should improve throughout the month. Long leech -type patterns are good, as are large deer-hair surface poppers. The poppers will probably work best when fished during cloudy times or very early in the morning or late in the evening (I mean dark, but legal). Look for the bass in the weedbeds near the lava dam.
