Went fishing on my local river on friday and found that it had dropped about 2 feet since last tuesday. The water continued to drop 6" while we were fishing. Needless to say, we only caught one fish at 6lbs.. It rained pretty good on saturday, but I didn't think it would raise the river too quick. I was pumped to get out on sunday, but when we got there, the river had risen 5 ft. and the current was rollin' at 10 mph. It was very hard to fish because the biggest sinkers I'll use are 5 oz. and the current just wouldn't let the bait sit where I wanted it to. It was also very hard to position the boat where I wanted and even the drift sock couldn't keep the boat from swaying. I was just wondering what you guys do when conditions are like this. Personally, I usually won't go if I have to use more than 4 oz., but my friend has never caught a flatty and he was determined to go. I know a lot of you have said that a rising river is best, but when it comes up like that what do you do? By the way, there aren't many oxbows or feeder creeks that feed this part of the river, we tried the only one I could get into and didn't get a strike. THANX GUYS and GOOD LUCK!
