    Hey all,
    Has anybody been to the rivers lately?
    Just wondered about the water temps?
    From what I read the lake is high and muddy.
    What about catching any fish?Cats or Strippers?

    thanks for any info,,,mike b

    Basscat,
    Did you come up the Dan and had caught a striper?
    My wife and I were in the boat that was at the turn.
    We got to the park around 10:30 and fished till 6pm.
    The fishing was slow,had 3 bits no fish..
    Fished from the split down to Bluestone.
    Used all different baits.
    maybe next time

    no wasnt me, my partner backed out on me, had babysitter problems, so i ended up fishing alone, out of my boat. only had 1 run, and missed that one. 32 lb flat took 1st place, and second was 31 lb blue, 3rd was 27 blue.

    guess they were biting, just not for me.

    mike sorry for takeing so long to reply,I posted on here about some info on the tourney, never heard anything.I just looked and it was gone. I didn't fish that tourney,got there to late.I fished like mike b did, couldn't catch a thing on the fishing poles but wore them out on noodles.I will be fishing the tourney on the 21st are you fishing it? It won't be long know about 2 to 3 weeks for that spot to start kicking in 1bigblue:cool2:
