    Checked out the Chain Of Rocks and Lock #26 today. Nobody was doing any good . The Chain of Rocks canal bridge is down to one lane because they are using half of the bridge for a bike trail now.

    I went up by the power plant above the dam yesterday and today.. Shad was easy to catch.. The catfish was another story.. Too much debris coming downriver.. Every time I brought my poles in to move I had 5 pounds of leaves on the sinkers... It still felt good to be on the river again.. That was my first time out this year, now if I can find where all the fish moved to...

    Harold, there is a real nice hole on the Missouri side of the river where the old bridge use to cross the Mississippi from Alton. Its 60-85 feet deep. There is usually some nice blues layin in there this time of year. Its easy to find, just look for the concrete embankment on the missouri side, then come off of it 30-50 yards. good luck.
