Raging River

I went out today for a couple of hours. The river is raging right now. The big Bass are in their post spawn non-biting mode. What other excuses can I think of... smirk.gif

I don't know where you're fishing, there are no rocks in this river. No Bass either. You guys are wasting your time.

Fished around monti yesterday... I could not tell you where the fish hide when the water is moving so fast.. Did manage to get a couple 18inches right next to the bank.. It was tough....

Took my 1800 Fisherman up there from home today, no sweat, the only fish I caught today were while parking under the trees by shoreside current breaks during the rain, 7 cats and 4 smallies. Walleyes are hiding from me again. Lots of 5 foot water around, with a lot of current.

Jiggin Jim - with the water up this high you might be able to do it... but that is a HUGE risk in my opinion. The river is too unpredictable and with a ranger one small move and your hull is toast. The reason why it's a huge risk is that there are boulders everywhere and in the high water you never know where they are unless you really know that section. All that said, the river is high right now and you might be able to do it... personally I would find a buddy with an aluminum hull and let him risk his boat wink.gif

      Water level is going down, but slowly.  My dock frame was 6" underwater last week and I can just see it above water today.  It's going to take time.

      My lil island front iron crib dock also under bout six inches. No Good! Lil higher than this time May 2008.  😮😮🥅🏒😮 No good to drop west dock for lifts as that would be under also n lift rails n pads be just but under water.  No Good! Marauder Boys miss the lake too. Happened before in my 26 years out there n will happen again so we just deal doing other stuff off lake n enjoy it all. Fun being a Shore Rat for shallow Crappies around home lakes. Bust a move n keep in the Grove. 🏒🥅🤩 We figure by anniversary June 12 th level drop enuff we sneek out in smaller Lund n fix up n open up? 🤩 Best of luck to ya but be safe. This lake is deeper n darker than you or I know…🤩 Big Smiles n Keep on Rocken! T    Did'nt intend to have pic so big....Geeezzz.

      We’re in the same boat. Actually I’d like to be in any boat. Our island cabin dock frame is about six inches under water. I hear that water is not rising which gives hope it will fall but I think Memorial Day is too optimistic, at least for us. You should think about other plans?

      looking to do some kayak bass fishing on Clearwater lake by Annandale. Are there any Other landings other than the one on the far south west end? Was wondering how the fishing is on the east end but that is a heck of a paddle. Appreciate any feedback.

      Water levels seems to be topic of the day. I'm visiting over Memorial Day week. Docks are not in on the island where I stay. Wondering if the water is going down? What do the rivers look like? Are they just pouring our water?? Is water level 6" lower than a few days ago?

      Finding plenty of fish around the area lately. Water on most of our area lakes and rivers is very high. Most of the panfish have moved from those back bay areas and are staging for the spawn. You can find the pannies tucked in the weeds right now close to those spawning beds. Casting small jigs without a float to pockets of vegetation or to outside the pencil reeds has been working well.
