Poor...just what it says....poor, not much going on, scattered and small (under 14")

 

Fair...Fish are being taken but +/- 14" and widely scattered. No size being reported.

 

Good....Fish are "bunching up" and being caught .....  2 lb. fish coming in with regularity.

 

Great....Fish are being caught almost everywhere with reports of "3 lbs.+" being taken by all reporting parties. This means that your "significant other" could go out and catch a limit and still be home in time to watch the noon football game.

 

PRODUCTIVE TECHNIQUES

The water levels are rising with the latest batch of storms that rolled through, and the river is scheduled to hit over 23 feet by Wednesday May 1st. It will be a few weeks before the river is back to fishable.
