I just got back from a much needed trip to the Upper Salt, I haven't been on the river lately mostly due to there being so many people and the rain. I decided to brave the weather and see how it would treat me. First of all, no bait was caught, although we spent a few hours on the main lake looking for sunfish and bluegills. So we reluctantly bought some waterdogs, and when we showed up to the river, we were surprised to find no one else on the bank. There's a reason for that, the river is swollen past its old banks. The water was high, going up and down about 4 ft overnight, and chocolate brown. Also, there was a lot of debris in the water and even 4ft from the water edge was knee high mud. It was hard fishing, everything wet with the rain all weekend, and no flatheads caught, just a few carp and small channels. I have a feeling that any flatheads would sort of hole up and hide when the water is flowing that fast with all that debris in the water too, I can't imagine them actively feeding anyway. What do you guys think? I think I'm going to wait for the rains to slow down before going back.
