I got off work early today so I headed out to the river. My first cast was at 2:30 in the afternoon. Three casts later and I'm catching my first fish then three fish later i catch the first picture u see, a little under two but a fun catch. Only fished two hours and got ten fish and missed a nice one on my last cast. I got four nice ones though and the other pic is another one. The water is semi clear and dropping fast, it dropped a good foot in two days and it's clearing up. I feel the fishing is going to get fun.

Did all the rain blow the floating weeds out?

Nice to see you found the bite. That's a pretty fish there for sure. You are right the river has dropped considerably and fast. By next weekend we should have normal pool if it doesn't rain alot. I on the other hand had to work for the meager offerings today. It was a tough bite and your post is convincing that the issue was with me and not external conditions. Dang it. Maybe next time.

Thanks for the report Smallmouth Junky. You and your fishing buddy seem to have them pretty dialed in. I've been reading your old posts and will be following your posts for the next few days.
