Last couple nights have been very cold-it was 24 degrees Friday night on into Saturday morning. That made for a very slow bite in the morning- frozen eyelets and cold fingers make for a little harder fishing. Truth is we need some rain- not the flood over the banks stuff. Just a good storm thru the areaÂ to bring the levelÂ up.
DONT GET DISCOURAGED- Many of the local fishermen understand and change their techniques daily to adapt to the ever changing river conditions. Most of these anglers are not discouraged by the extreme spectrum of the river conditions and you see them out there in high or low water catching fish.
We have been seeing some big jacks- a bunch of 7-9 pounders.
