caught two smallmouths Wednesday about two or three miles above Wilmington dam on crankbait. Nothing since then.
*update: caught 3 more (2 large mouth 1 small mouth) at the mouth of horse creek.

10 years ago, the river was my first early option to fish. Quite frankly, it is now my last. There are better places to fish for bass. Strip pits, ponds, cooling lakes offer better action. I have picked up a float tube and a small jon boat, and have been fishing other water.

Maybe in the future, the river will return on a strong cycle, but right now, forget it.
