    I have not fished the Warrior this year, yet. I jug fish Bankhead Lake
    in the summertime. I have heard some good reports from the warm
    water discharge at Gorgus steam plant. But that was a month ago.
    Sorry I could not be more help.

    so you are fishing the holt lake side..ive never bank fished around there but we always did good with jugs there.we fish down at eagle shores,it is about 14 miles down stream but its still holt lake,and there is a spot down there that goes from 75ft to 5ft and back to 30ft on the other side.it is a hot spot for blues.as far as oliver goes,piss on that place.never have done any good there,not to mention there is a stinkin paper mill or something right on the bank and it will gag a maggot.but anyways,holt lake is an all right fishery and so is bankhead
