    Heading over to Cumb. City for fresh skips Thursday morning for the Fish and Camp next weekend. If anybody else is there I'll be in a pewter GMC crew cab.

    Later,

    John, I got there at 10:30, made about a dozen casts and knew I was wasting my time. Water level was above the sidewalk by 5 or 6 ft. Like you said, the river was UP and muddy w/ lots of floating objects. The river has a week to straighten out, no more rain!

    I drove over to the ramp, one boat out, I believe they were with a barge crew. I drove over to Grices Creek, water up so high, I don't believe a boat could get under the train tressel. Oh well, I did manage to go over to Erin and get my room reserved for the Fish and Camp!

    Matt, I was down there the first week of December catching skips like crazy in short sleeves. I don't think a few days of warm weather will hurt things too much by itself.

    I was there yesterday (2/02/09) with two of my fishing buddys. We caught about 100 in 6hrs.... the water was very muddy. We were fishing from the bank (didn't want to haul the boat 4hrs), but could see them in the river busting on the thredfins in huge numbers. If we had a boat with us we could have filled it in no time.

    We will be hauling a boat down with us, so I think we will have it all covered.
