    Plenty of skipjacks below Canelton dam and Newburg dam. A couple small white jigs or small roostertail ussually produce well.

    Saw some guys with a really long handled dip net scooping them up where the water was going over the wall. Just the other day. They were fishing from the bank in the flooded willows and doing well from what they told me.
