Hello all,

Me and a friend want to make a spring two day float on Jacks Fork (Rymers to Alley). What time/month in the spring offers the best fishing? I am thinking about 1 May. Not sure if that is too early or late?

Any replies are appreciated

Thanks. I did some fishing there this summer (July) using a 4 inch senko texas rig on a carolina rig setup with about an 18" leader. I didnt have much luck with small cranks or spinners. Would you expect a srping pattern to be the same?

That rig should work about any time the water is warm enough for them to be active...may not be the best thing to use at a given time, but if you have confidence in it you'll probably catch fish on it. One thing, though...if you happen to catch the river high and murky, you might want to try normal bass size spinnerbaits and crankbaits.

It depends on water clarity...up and milky...big baits....Clear & early in the year usually means down on the bottom on the Jack's...think jig,tube, curly tail....maybe a soft jerkbait...on top is worth a shot too..
