    I've heard of folks talk of catching them.... I just ain't caught any or seen any caught in over the two decades I've been fishing the white.... but! I'd've never thought there'd be skippies and stripers either until I seen them with my own eyes this year.

    farthest up i have seen one caught was paragon. but dont think they could get through the dams at indy except from a spring flood. i figured i would have done seen at least one be caught because they have tourneys at riverside and broadripple all the time. at least twice a month if not three times a month since april. and there are some deep holes at riverside.

    is there a specific reason why there aren't many blues in the white its probably an obvious answer but i dont kno much about them.

    go down to worthington and south all the way to the bash and you will catch them all the time. plenty of deep holes down that way.
