    Hey everybody, long time no see.

    Unfortunately I have not been out catting this year, and I was just wondering how my beloved maple river is doing for the cats? I really want to get out and tackle some of the flatties.
    Anyways, let me know how the fishing is PLEASE!!!! :wink::smile2:

    Might head there tonight. I would imagine it will be difficult to keep my bait on bottom after all the rain we've had, but I have to get my line wet. Haven't went all year:angry:

    Wow, we hit the river over the 4th of July weekend. Man was that water fast. It took a 2oz. sinker to keep my liver on the bottom. We only had 2 hits all night, but we connected, catching 2 small channels.
    I think we will wait a week or two for the water level to go down.
    Anyway, thats my report!

    Fished the maple in maple rapids a few days back. The water was great, not flowing fast at all. Got some nice channels and had one big hit on a bluegill, But came up empty handed:confused2:
