Bedford lake Is a fantastic place and for me I got a fish right along the bank without even knowing and the fish wasn’t even fighting back. it was just chilling like acting like nothing happened and I was talking to my family when that happened. Either way Bedford like it’s a really really good place

Great for Sunfish, Shiners, and Microfishing.

About half a mile hike down to the bass of the falls. I caught a creek chub first cast in with a small rooster tail. Later in the day large crowds showed up to enjoy the falls, so I hiked down the creek. There are three pools hiking down from the falls that are full of sunfish and shiners. Caught 7 small fish total on the trip. I probably would’ve caught a greater diversity of species if I had the proper rig for microfishing.
