    What tactics does everyone use while fishing the river when there is hardy any current? I am heading down to the Ohio tonight, and just called the dam and they are only running 5ft of water through. That is almost DEAD, just curious as to how some of you may approach fishing the river when it is like that?? I am obviously going to be fishing bends, and looking for any current i can find, but any other suggestions??

    I prefer fishing areas in the river with little or no current, I fish them just about the same as high current areas, with a sliprig, just dont need as much weight of course..And as always Circle hooks and cut shad.
