    the water levels i dont think are that bad but i bet some swim baits or jigs would work pretty good now.

    where i fish on the GMR, i catch a lot of saugeye and sauger in mid to late-spring on night crawlers hooked on a 1/16oz. jighead depending on the water level and the power of the current.

    never fished in franklin, but where i fish i use any live forage fish from about 4-8in with 30lb berkley big game and 4/0-6/0 octopus circle hooks for flatheads. for smallmouth, i use any small inline spinner, small crankbait, small jerkbait, or just live bait with about 6-8lb test.
