Low water flow = predictable pattern


Recommended Posts

Hadn't been on the water much lately as work has been hectic, but got out yesterday afternoon several miles up from Springfield lake.  

With barely any water flow i couldn't get bit anywhere except the deepest rocky ledge in the pocket, but they were stacked up in a 30yd section and it made for a great couple hours.  Swimbait and shaky head drug along the deepest drop produced 10 fish in well under 2 hours, with this toad being the best.  No scale but best guess was close to 4lb. 

Only fished the one area behind my house but would guess this pattern would be good anywhere there's deep ledge rock or chunk rock until the water flow increases.

That’s a nice fish. I always liked the river above the lake more than below. Well until most access was cutoff up there.

I'm fortunate enough to have access right from my back yard, although it's quite a hike. A deeper pocket with chunk rock and laydowns makes it worth it.
