    Do channels move in high water. It is pouring rain right now. My hole I was going to try tomorrow will probably be 2-3 ft higher by morning. Is this a good or bad time to fish for channels.

    Small river maybe 40-60ft across and 8-12 ft deep

    Thanks in advance.

    I have always found that channels hit good in small rivers on rising waters,cut bait is good bait

    When I see the N.B. Suskie on the rise I'm on my way. I dont know why it would be any different where you are (cut bait) would be the bait of choice.

    if the river is rising, do u want to fish in the same locations that you normally do, or are there certain spots u'd want to focus on?

    I mostly fish the same spot all the time, high or dry, it just seems to get better when its comeing up. I've even got cat's at flood stage.

    depending on the speed of the currents, the cats might be a little further out. if the current is pretty fast, fish behind current breaks. kick some tail, :lol:.
