    I haven't in years but I used to fish up it sometimes from a boat. I've caught a lot of white bass and some pretty good crappie up there. It's filled with logs, trees and no telling what else. There should be some good fishing there.

    Never bank fished it, but been way up there in a boat. Tons and tons of structure in there. Log jams near the bridges, submerged stumps, weed beds, etc. Lot's or eating size channels in there and I'd bet that it's just full of flatheads at night. Depth is about 25 feet most of the way to the interstate. It's a pretty good place to fish in the summer as it's totally under tree cover. But if there's no current, the water just plain looks bad. Been a couple of years since I was in there, but it's got lot's of fish in it.

    I catch the heck out of eatin' size channels in the Adams area during May and June. Sit on the outside of a bend and throw cutbait out and just let it drift.
