Tell me about it! I went on Sunday am, even though I knew better by looking at the hydrograph, only to learn that I was likely wasting my time.

I went down to Wilmington Dam and the broken dam on Saturday and it was a white water rampage ( except the water was the the color of chocolate milk). Water was still pretty high and FAST near the dams. I also went down by the creek that runs in to the river, up river from I-55 and it was flowing pretty hight and fast as well. Once the temps increase and the water decreases, fish should be a bit more receptive.
