    I have caught them in 20-30ft. And have caught them in 10-15 ft. Wintering holes don't have to be the deepest holes in a section of river in my opinion. But, have to have the characteristics to draw them to them. I do better in areas that don't have a strong main current pushing through. I like the slack areas more, with either rock or timber for them to hold around.....rollo
