    Air temp - 60 deg.
    Skies - sunny
    Wind - blowing upriver 5 to 7 mph
    Water temp - 48.5 deg.
    Water level - 6.5' on the fall, moderate debris, moderate current
    Water clarity - moderately murky
    Time - 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm
    Bait - cut bluegill & green sunfish

    Fished holes 16' to 24' and submerged breaks in current, slack water behind brush piles, and slow moving deep channels on the outside of bends. Not one single hit. The bite must be off due to the yo yo water levels we have had here lately and water condition. Hopefully the river will level off around 3.5' and clear up a little by next weekend. If it does, I'll try again. Later, WRB.

    Barry,
    Sounds like we need to make that bait run but I haven't heard anything good enough yet to make the trip...W

    It's that way in my area also. It's a hit miss time of the year here.

    Better yet guys save your gas money give it to me and I will give you all my vacuum packed then you wont have to guess if they are in. As I am not going to need any bait for a while. Till prob. late January. Then I will take your gas money and go down and catch more.
