Yesterdays high winds made it tough out on the river, It blew the water in and created a wind tunnel that was really hard to cast into. The anglers that found a break out of the wind got into the white bass pretty good, we saw a few bucketsÂ and coolers full.Â Today the wind has died so all access areas are open.Â Â Orleans Park, White street, along the towpath, Davis over lookÂ and Jerome rd should all be productive for white bass. And we are real close to being able to cross to bluegrass island for the first time in 3 weeks. There is still a good number of walleye in the river, good chance ofgetting a few walleye and a bunch of white bass.
