My river has come up a tad..Couple inches is all but I am thinking the new smell of rain will get a good push up hopefully...Thinking of fishing low tomorrow and intercept them..

Good plan or wishfull thinking?? LOL

I've been targeting the lower river. But your dead on about the smell. Once the rivers start to rise the fish the were holding low will be on the move. You can fish low for the fresh fish coming in, or move up a little and get at the fish that were waiting.

I dont think you'd be wasting your time if you ran Twin bridges down. Those fish holding down low could be stacking up around the town waiting for more water to come in so they can make the run up into the gorge.

Have you floated from moonshine? If you havent I would stay away. Its got some nasty hydrualics right there after the park. Its gotten worse the last couple years and always sink's a few boats. Even the guides have been having trouble.

When you get to a certain point in your fishing career. You just want to fish how you want to fish. If you like staying away from the crowds then I would forsure do your normal drift. Its about enjoying your time on the water.

We are suppose to have some pretty good tides this month, Its gunna make it a easy trip into the river for all the fish. So Im betting that all the lower rivers will fish decent no matter what the conditions are.

I was going to put in at Twin Bridges,but there were a few boats putting in...Went on down to the usual spot and didn't see another person until 1:00...I like that kind of fishing..

Still thought the fishing was slow..I pulled a lot of water today..
