GOOD MORNING ,

aaaTYESTERDAY PROVED TO BE YET ANOTHER GOOD DAY OF WALLEYE FISHING ON THE RIVER. WE SAW SOME ANGLERS IN AND OUT EARLY WITH THEIR LIMIT AND ALL DAY WE HAD REPORTS OF FISH BEING CAUGHT AT ALL THE ACCESS AREAS. FT. MEIGS , BLUEGRASS , BUTTONWOOD AND FORD STREET PRODUCING THE BEST RESULTS. TODAY THE RIVER LEVEL IS SLIGHTLY BELOW NORMAL , THE WATER TEMP HAS WARMED A HALF DEGREE AND WE HAVE MOSTLY CLOUDY SKIES CALLING FOR A HIGH OF 57 WITH A 40% CHANCE OF RAIN DEVELOPING THIS AFTERNOON. TOMMOROW THEY ARE AGAIN CALLING FOR COOLER TEMPRATURES AND RAIN OFF AND ON THROUGHOUT THE DAY. TODAY THE RIVER IS STILL HAS PLENTY OF WALLEYE AND THE LAST FEW DAYS WE HAVE SEEN QUITE A FEW JACKS AND SPAWNED OUT FEMALES. ALSO WE HAVE BEGUN TO SEE A FEW WHITE BASS BEING CAUGHT. WITH THE RAIN AND THE COOLER TEMPRATURES THE THE RIVER SHOULD RISE AND COOL DOWN IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS WHICH WILL BRING IN THAT NEXT PUSH OF FISH. TODAY ALL ACCESS AREAS ARE OPEN AND AVAILABLE AND WE CONTINUE TO HAVE REPORTS OF LIMITS AT ALL AREAS . CROSSING TO BLUEGRASS ISLAND IS POSSIBLE TODAY. ALSO FISHERMEN CAN PARK AT SIDECUT PARK, AND HIKE UP TO THE JEROME RD RAPIDS , THIS IS DUE TO THE ROAD BEING CLOSED AT THE CEMETARY AS A RESULT OF THE WINTER ICE DAMAGE. THE WALLEYE ARE STILL RUNNING THIS WEEKEND AND WE HAVE MANY OUT OF TOWN FISHERMEN COMING TO PARTICIPATE IN THE RUN , DO NOT HESITATE TO STOP IN HERE AT THE SHOP AND WE WILL BE GLAD TO HELP YOU FIND WHAT LURES ARE WORKING BEST TODAY AND DIRECTIONS TO THE BEST ACCESS AREAS FOR TODAYS CONDITIONS. WITH THE CURRENT CONDITIONS WE HAVE SEEN QUITE A FEW OF THE EXPERIENCED ANGLERS SWITCH TO USING THE SMALLER FLOATING JIGHEADS PAIRED WITH THE 2" TWISTER TAILS ON A CAROLINA RIG. WEIGHT RANGING AROUND 1/2OZ, 3/8OZ AND SEVERAL ANGLERS GETTING LIMITS WITH 1/4 OZ WEIGHT. WITH THE CLOUDY SKIES TODAY SOME OF THE DARKER COLORS SUCH AS PURPLE BUTTERSCOTCH WITH A SPARKLE AND THE FIRETIGER COLORS SHOULD HAVE POSITIVE RESULTS.

HAVE ANOTHER GREAT DAY AND GOOD LUCK FISHING !
