  1. Did you all get a bunch of rain down there?
  2. Are you dead set on wading or would you be willing to rent a canoe? That would open quite a bit of possibilities. Depending on water levels, the Jacks Fork can offer some wading opportunities, but it is not really a wading steam. You’ll hit a hole too deep to wade pretty quickly. The Current has very little wading opportunity anywhere that has smallmouth bass. Most people won’t share good wading streams on open forums, but they will share good stretches of floatable streams.
  3. @Al Agnew, Crooked disappears at some point between Yelleville and the White. Do you know where that starts? I can tell from Street View that it is gone by the time it gets to the next bridge (6002).
  4. Awesome day. That looks like some skinny water too.
  5. If it is a state highway, there is a good chance there is a street view. Gravel roads are rarely covered. Paved county roads just kind of depend. Even if you can’t see the actual access, sometimes you can see the entrance to the last turnoff and can see if the road is private or not.
  6. Surprised nobody mentioned street view yet. That can be very helpful.
  7. 225’s. It’s 450’s these days are nothing at all lol.
  8. I always like the idea of trying new places (floating to me is 50% scenery too). But at the same time, it seems we always end up back at the same couple places that we know hold fish.
  9. Al, Send me all your unlisted streams and I can use a GIS mapping software to calculate the distance for you 🤫
  10. Do they even have room to turn?
  11. Tackle HD Craw, Tackle HD Hellgrammite, Zara Spook Puppy, Bitsy Tube, and rebel wee craw over a 20-30 minute period.
  12. Idk. The only evidence I can offer is are those 10+ year old smallmouth that survive heavily pressured areas. I saw (was unable to catch) an easily 15” smallmouth on sinking creek last weekend in an extremely popular area. I’m certain that fish has had lures in front of it at least two to three days per week all summer for the last decade plus. It gave zero interest in my lures while all the 10” bass were all over them. Not a coincidence.
  13. Al, What size spinner baits do you generally use? I can never decide between the “full size”, traditional largemouth bass types and the slightly smaller, “medium-sized” ones.
  14. Al, I generally agree about live bait on rivers and almost never use it. I will say, there are times when I’m sight fishing, and make several cast to a fish with multiple artificial lures that they either ignore or inspect and then around. Then, I put a live crawdad on, and they immediately hammer it.
