It has been raining a lot and it seems it is going to be raining most of next week. The long rain forecast calls for a very wet spring and maybe summer. It seems there is a "el nina" system off the coast of Peru. Which means that part of the ocean is unusally cool. When this happens it seems to bring a unusually wet rain pattern to the midwest. If you like to catfish this is good news. the rivers will be up and stay up for a good while. We are in store for a great season. I love fishing in the rain and have always done my best on rainey days. I fish for flat heads and they are a night fish except they do bite good in the day during low light conditions. The rest of the cats, blues, channels ect also like the rain. Bad weather for humans, clouds, rain ect is great for fishing. Also another BIG factor is the river levels. Theres a lot of rain up north and the snow is starting to melt up there. When the rivers go up the fish are on the move, especially in the spring. Happy fishing every one!!!!!!!!!!!!
