Catching a handful of Smallmouth Bass kayak fishing Sugar Creek,November, 2015, starting up at Shades State Park, and wrapping up at Coxford Bridge, just downstream of Turkey Run State Park. Unfortunately, I was unable to float the creek during the peak of Autumn's colors, but had the stream all to myself, albeit an abundance of wildlife, including numerous Bald Eagles. Both the sky and the stream were especially clear during this trip. If I remember correctly, most of the fish were caught with a sinking Rapala while using an Abu Garcia Cardinal on a Shakespeare Ugly Stick Rod. I have been using eight pound test line these past few seasons, and implementing a Palomar knot whenever possible.
