Fished upper park 5-6:15pm, tried three different areas with decent amount of slack water. Threw plastics, crankbaits and spinners, focusing in the slacker water and tight to the bank. No bites on anything in noncurrent areas or tight to the bank. Only fish came on a spinnerbait in hard current outside of willows. Clarity less than 6".

Catfished upper park 8-10:30pm. Started out fishing a current break in around 5ft of water ,1/2oz slip sinker and bluegills. Stayed on that spot 30 minutes and only managed one fish. Moved upstream into shallower water(less than 2ft) and faster current, focused tighter to the bank fishing in submerged tree roots and wood. That bite was much better, finished with eight fish 3-8lbs. All fish were released.

Fished upper and middle park,4:30-7pm. My last few trips out have been pitiful to say the least. Managed two fish today, a 12"er and 15"er. Pretty much threw the whole arsenal today, both fish came on a large Big O in heavier current. Clarity is poor but improving(12" max) and the levels are still high for this time of year. Going to northern MI for a week and hoping to see the river in better shape when I get back.

Stonecat T.G. is looking very dapper. A photo of the crappie would have been cool.

Fished with my pops 5:30-7:30pm, middle park. I concentrated in swifter current well outside of any breaks throwing a mix of different plastics and high vibration nonrattling crankbaits. I struggled, landing 8 punks all under 13". My old man fished slacker current inside of main breaks, he threw larger in line spinners. He ended up with around 15, with three over 17" and a crappie over 12". It doesn't happen often but the old man pretty much schooled me!

Hey it gets lonely standing on shore watching me go by. Maybe Buck will take pity. At this rate, it will be a complete blowout. Take weeks to come down and clear.

hipster78 QUOTE Stonecat Fall might be a washout at this rate. It needs to quit raining, but then again it might keep away the hammertime bucket brigade.
