Went to a small stream that feeds the main river caught 9 in about an hour and a half. went back out Sunday morning ending up in six in about 2 hours. fished again Sunday afternoon and got 4 more. All in all probably had about 40 hook ups. sucker spawn glow bugs.
hogang Location: Walnut, 4,7, 12 mile
Time Observed: 4/10/15
Water Conditions: Muddy / Stained - 1 ft visibility
Not many fish landed, total of 5 for three of us, this number approaches 20 in the fall season. Lots of Jacks. Thought walnut would produce; however does not appear many fish have decided to visit the Manchester Hole. Headed east to find muddy water and not many more fish. 4 mile appeared most promising however not ideal for fly rods at the mouth (wind and deep water). Not much company on the water which made for enjoyable day. Enjoy trout / bass season everyone.
fisherofmen376 Location: westside
Time Observed: 4/8/ 4/9
