i fish the river quiet a bit considering i mow my grandmas lawn there every week, i have cought the most along the riverwalk downtown.
also right off 75th there is a park called pioneer park, if you wade downstream the fishing is really good.
i usually use rebel craws, origional rapalas, and minow jigs
one day at the very end of summer i cought prolly over 40 smallies in a few hours on a minow jig on the riverwalk. nothing over 15" but it was crazy, almost everycast i would bring one in. god i felt like a celebrity, i had a crowd the whole time! got pretty old though.
