Was out Labor Day a.m. before the storms blowed everything up. The fish are very active at the moment. I ended up with eighteen fish total in about four hours, a mix of smallmouth and largemouth. Hit both the east branch and the main stem. No smallies over 13" but did get a dandy largemouth. All fish on Gulp minnows.

After the bump in flows I did some shore fishing on my off day Tuesday. Had action at every stop and missed far many more than I landed. Totaled thirteen in a longer day of over five hours on the west branch. All smallmouth today.

I know of several rock bars on the west branch that allow me to get out to the middle of the river at these levels for better casting angles.

Those river smallie's look real healthy and most likely we a lot of fun. What were you throwing for those?

All fish taken on 4" Gulp on 3/8th Oz jigs tossed realllllly tight to cover. I avoided area's with any real push chuck. Fished mostly from shore or right off it.

I was thinking more of the storm hitting so quickly that you were caught outside in it. Like that unlucky guy on Whalon Lake. I left for the gym, around 11am, came out around 1:45pm and there were huge puddles and areas of flooded streets. The downpour was so severe that the drains could not keep up.
