    I have gotten skunked in 2 very dependable spots the last 2 nights. Here's the river's conditions: The river is so low that there's no flow. The waterb looks like sewage (foan evrywhere). Catch alot of weeds on your line. Full moon. Are these conditions against me???? I did very well last week and the bite just stopped. Any suggestions???

    Tan, look for fish in bigger water, like lakes. Fish along the bank where there are flats close to deep water, at night. Vern

    Find a place in the river where the water is still flowing some. You should find the cats there.

    It almost sounds like the river has turned over. If there is absolutely no current then it is possible that is what has happened. If thats the case you are going to catch little to nothing FOR NOW. It is tough for catfish to feed in these types of conditions. Cats really heavily on all of their senses when it comes to feeding. You better believe that all of that junk in the water makes it tough on them. Another thing you can count on is the big boys being hungry as soon as that water clears a little. Good luck and stay after it.
