    I always fish the bottom in rivers and streams. If you can use cutbait or live gills.

    I've always used cut shad fishing it off the bottom. Never really used live bait.

    Chicken liver is my ol'stand by bait.I always bait one pole with it and I've caught more fish on liver than anything else-usually pansize channels.I agree with the other guys I'd fish bottm in the current.I use a 3-way rig with a break away line to the sinker.Be sure to wrap your liver good in thread so the current doesn't take it off.Good fishing to you!:big_smile:
