Default Smallies with pics

Got on the water about 10 today. River is low and clear. We fought the moss at times which made throwing cranks a challenge. Wind was blowing pretty hard too. Had to move around a bit and fish were on then off all day. Minnows and Flukes were the choice baits today. Fish seemed to be stacking in the current right where it meets slack water. Got a lot of fish with some pretty nice ones mixed in. Got one that was just shy of 20". They were nice and thick.

Nice! You've got the best K3 reports I've seen all year.

We fished from 10am until just after 4. Bite did stop and start again. We would just move when it slowed until we found more fish. We got close to 40 fish between 2 of us.

I've never fished the K and don't live near it, but great report and pics. Nice to see someone out having success.

Got out there on Saturday in between rains and couldn't duplicate the outings you've had by any means! Got two after doing a lot of drifting. Went back the next day and stayed outside of the main park and drifted minnows and found a small pool with decent current flowing and finally caught about half dozen but nothing like previous years runs I think it has a lot to do with timing and I think you nailed it.
