That is key. Keep in mind it's an impoundment, so we need to fish it as such. You have rivers and lake to fish, and the fish really make pretty big movements, depending on what their food is doing.Time of the year and where your fishing is very important in this lake.
thanksThat section can be chalk full of fish and a total dead zone at other times. Think of it as a migration zone. When you find them in there in a big way, try to find out what conditions have them there.....fish are dumb, but there's always a reason for them being where they are, and it's most often food. Location is dependent on two things, mainly--spawning and eating. There's also water temp and O2 levels etc....but best not to overcomplicate things
Fishing current can be difficult. One needs some good boat control, but if it's done right, a dead zone can be proved otherwise.
always concerned about weatherI haven't had much success on the river other than last week end and that was at the mouth. My best fishing is out on the lake as far as 13 miles from the narrow bridge.
