    I haven't had any time to get out and try, but I haven't heard about anyone having any luck. But I am ready to get back out with this nice weather.

    I went out yesterday and all I Caught was a cold. My throat is pretty sore from all the cold wind and my face was pretty chapped. I haven't went out in a while, it beats not going out. I was below alton dam using some skippies, I figured I would at least get a bite they are letting a lot of water out.

    Went up by Saverton Dam yesterday ,Didn't get a bite.Was using some Shad that I had frozen but no luck. sure was nice just getting out though ,sun shinning and all.River is up about a foot in our area. could be why they are letting water out at Alton.Boy we need to get water in the river not let it out.
