    Hey guys just got hooked up with this site. Went to upper salt above rosev last week only had one good run. when i got it to the boat i saw my blue gill come flying out of the water. Never really catfished till recently, after you hook a flat head you are addicted. Well just looking for some good spots on the upper salt?

    as your going in to bart before you get to main ramp turn right on the dirt road and take it around. you can turn off as soon as you pass the srp gates into river bed and go a ways to water. better have 4x4. or go down it will wind to a one way road. and when it circles the river is within 10-30 yards depending on where you park. good luck hope it helps.:tounge_out:

    hay jayson i will tell u another good spot u pass it if u fish below horseshoe when u are going to horseshoe there is a cattle pin on the left hand side when u get to the bottom of the hill well there is a road that goes to the right it is the road that the rancher uses to cross the river well if u turn right on that road there is another road that y's to the right if u take that road it will take u back down the river u have to cross the river once and there is a big rock stiking up in the middle of the river. i always catch flatts right in front of that rock the current splitts around each side of it and thay hang in front. but u have to have a serious 4x4 lots of soft sand and river rock
