    It is so hard to tell, but you want to find some deeper water. Whereabouts do you live? And how far are you willing to travel?

    Hey Dink, I was down that way all weekend. I didn't get to fish though. I did go check out our spots. I think that first spot we fished looks even better now with the river near flood stage. It might not have been high enough to force the fish there last time. There is still a really big eddie their. I don't know where else the fish would go when it is as high as it is now.

    Get this, me and the woman were eating on Mike Finks party boat. We have a window seat, and the whole time I'm watching the river and trees fly by while ignoring her. And then, as quick as it came it was gone, some dude on a kayak was going down the middle of the river. I've never seen anything like it. That water is cold. Crazy dude!
