Tomorrow or Thursday or both?

Amazingly enough, I have new spinners as well. I ended up with an extra blade, but everything else was the right amount.

Hey GMR,
I am heading that direction in the morning also. I have only fished the Wilson once and that was years ago. If you see a red 90s toyota 4x4 extra cab wandering aimlessly, that would be me. If its parked, feel free to stop and say hi.

I would focus my energy pretty high. The water will likely be on the rise at least most of the day, with some pretty strong flows and quite a bit of color too. From Thursday on looks to be pretty good though. The fish will be tucked on the bottom and close to the bank for the most part. I would definitely go with bait or jig under a bobber, it'll be really tough to get a spinner on the bottom where the fish will be.

Yeah I like the challenge:)
Ive been searching for spots that I can better hit with spinners.
And have had a decent amount of luck lately so..
And I have a whole new batch of nicely weighted spinners to try out.

I have found a few spots (one of which I think you showed me)
that I can get a spinner to the bottom and hit most of the places im after.
If not, at least I had fun trying.

I would be interested in hearing how the fishing was. I am planning on hitting the Wilson tomorrow (Fri.) Never fished this river so any tips are more than welcome!

Well, I will be out there after I drop the kids off at school. Probably on the river around 9:00-9:30 ... if you see a maroon 2000 Blazer that's me! :) Dusting off my gear now!
