Ccccooollldddd Water Tips?


Recommended Posts

I am contemplating floating CC tomorrow on the kayak(with waders!) and I am wondering if it would be a waste of time. The water should have some color with this rain we had, and I havent been bass fishing in too long.

I was thinking of taking 3 rods. Jig on one rod, either a tube or a grub on another, and a suspending jerkbait on the 3rd.

everything in this post is purely opinion and is said to annoy you.

Being that the water is about 2 feet below the slab, I think you are going to have a drag of a time.

There's a fine line between fishing and sitting there looking stupid.

Time to start trout fishing. Bass fish in summer/trout fish in winter, trout have been biting well, not sure about spin fishing for them in winter, maybe someone has tips. I would say ultra light with indicator and small maribou jig.

I have been doing a little trout fishing. I need to go out on NFoW with you one day. fishing hasn't been as good as I would like lately below norfork dam. I did catch a 18" brown this morning.

Go for it if the water is above 40, they will bite out of the current. I guided the last two days where the water temps were 41 and 39. Both days were good for bass, but I did catch more in the 41 degree water. Totaled 37 bass with a few picture taker brownies. I'd start and stay with a tiny hair jig. Deep and slow! If the water temps are below 38, don't expect to catch anything.

I'd love too. If you're not getting them below the dam I think you might be disappointed here. While the fish still bite this time of year, I don't think we can expect the action we get once the water starts warming up. Winter fishing = more beer/less fish.
