Always like to fish inlets coming into lakes during and right after a storm.

Most of the time it helps .........triggers flatheads to move around and channelcats for certain are more active after heavy rain. Torrential water
washes night crawlers and other food into water.

I believe the circumstances of rain depends on the weather.
I have had on and off days after a rain.

had some of my best luck right before, during and after a good rain storm. Best to use either night crawlers or cut baits IMO

I agree with Lil kat, rain will bring a river/lake/reservoir up and wash a lot of bait in the water. Your best bait when this happens is to match the bait. Catfish will scout the shores for whatever and a lot of times this is nightcrawlers. They will tear up nightcrawlers close to shore.

On jugs, like on KY lake they will really taper off bitting, unless you run them shallow.
