    I've fished it once, but I was very unprepared to fish for cats. It looks good, real good. I dunno if there are any big cats, but a friend of my brother catches a bunch of smaller eater size cats. He just used worms and livers. If you go I would look for the holes that are slightly deeper than the rest of the river. That's where I caught every fish I caught when I went. Like I said I didn't get any cats, but I know they are in there and the river is a very neat place to fish. Good luck man.

    Yeah, I was right in Danville when I was fishing. The river was pretty small, I don't see it having many big cats up that way, but I'm sure that if it gets a little bigger there will be some nice ones.

    definitely hit it up down by kerr lake anywhere above that it is too polluted and snaggy. tight lines!
