I haven't posted an update in a minute. The weather has had the river in all sorts of mess the last week or so. The fishing was incredible right before this last outbreak and yesterday was the first day I felt I could get back out with artificials and get some bites. The fish have really pushed north with the high current, which normally happens. I caught fish yesterday from well above Franklin to well below. The white bass are starting to get spawned out and really beat up, but the big female hybrids are here in force. I really think we should have another few weeks of decent fishing...we just need the rains to slow down some.

The fish are really seeking out slack water right now and you could find a big wad in the right place. Black/chartreuse swimbaits were the ticket in the muddy water.

Love catching anything with lines. Hybrid are starting to move up around me now. The white bass are still full of eggs. Love to see the boys smile and holding fish
