Default Aug 15th with pics

I usually don't fish the river much during the summer months but I got the itch today. I didn't do too bad. I got about 15 smallies. Size was so-so with a couple nice ones mixed in. Most fish were in 12-14 inch range but got two around 17 Inches. I moved a lot and fish did as well. I would get a few in each spot then they would quit. Started at 9am and fished until around 2pm. Got most on yellow and black rattle trap and a few on jig and minnow. I tried shad raps, Flukes, top waters with no luck. Water is very low and on the stained side. Not much in the way of weeds at all.

Great pics.

Nice fish and great report. Glad you caught so many, especially at midday.

Nice results there Cotto. I wonder if the cooler temps helped out. I'm with you August is usually the month I steer clear of the kank.

last August was unbelievable for walleyes for some reason, and big ones to kick also....there were a few days where i was catching 10-12 walleyes per day....so far this year not so much i have caught 4 smaller eyes in 5 outings....bass have been scarce also...catfish are biting all over the river....water is low but dirty and stained, hardly any visibility for some reason
