Went out this morning. Nothing! Not even a lite bite. Four boats were out, counting ours. 2 up at Capital Street... don't know how they did. One more at a undisclosed creek entrance. I know they did well. We saw them bring one up as we passed. I would have been there too with that cold water coming in. Was on the water by 6am and they were there before us, so we moved on. We tried another creek entrance upstream, current was coming out so slow, it wasn't holding any fish.
Niles Dam said temp was 71, but my Lowrance stated 74.5. Still too warm. Will wait until next week to go again.
Zappia was packed with cars. Might give Mark, our CO, a heads up... heard reports of people snagging there.
We really need a couple of days of heavy rain. Next 2 weeks don't look promising.
FYI, River is as low as I've ever seen it this time of year. Went over a bar that normally has no issues at all. Yep, bent prop, but was able to straighten it out. Be careful out there... luckily we weren't breaking a wake.
Have Perch...will travel...
