Big Doe on the west side of the creek. Tips of her ears are about 6'0" off the ground.
I've seen several racked bucks in the same location this summer that are actually a bit smaller than this doe.... This is in a suburban area with a lot of houses and people around.

When fishing Sturgeon Creek, it's a good idea to keep an eye on the tackle box for un-intended ;) live bait. Black dragon fly just out of molt. He chose the black lures in my box to sit at to dry off his wings...

He was just newly molted, and needed a place to sit and dry off his wings.
I didn't bother him, and he was gone 20 min later.
Never had much luck with live insect bait...

Clubtail dragonfly. Did you see the nymph crawl out of the water or up a reed?

I was set up about a foot from shoreline.
Lots of ways for him to get up including reeds.
Looked for a nymph shell briefly but didn't find it.
My attention is always (almost) on the water surface looking for baitfish activity. That's where I drop my plugs or grubs....
