Well we have had a tough week of fishing aft6er the rain that came through last week. The river has been really muddied up. Spring runoff,Â rain creates these conditions in the springÂ and is a necessary part of the hydro-logic cycle. It recharges aquifers, raises water levels, and provides the nutrients necessary for productive fisheries. It also creates some tough fishing conditions â€“ as high sediment loads muddy up the water making it extremely difficult for bass to track your baits. There arenâ€™t a lot of baits more versatile than a spinnerbait, and thatâ€™s the main reason they can still load the coolerÂ when the waterâ€™s flowing mud. Donâ€™t be afraid to try unique darker colors like black, or red on your spinnerbaits when itâ€™s muddy.
Vibrating jigs like the Zman Chatterbait are killers as well. That vibe triggers all sorts of stuff to bite.
Have fun be safe and good luck fishing.
