Planning on taking a trip down the creek tomorrow. Water should be about right.

I went on 5/14 down the creek, was still a tad high, but the fishing was good. Caught about 15 fish, one 17 inch shoalie and a 20.75 Large mouth in the mix. Was a good day.

Me and a buddy took our sons (8 and 9) down the creek for the first time. I caught 7 or 8 shoal bass, with the biggest being around 15". The boys had a great time paddling and playing in the water and we saw a bald eagle twice. A16C71D3-B537-4831-92AD-8B2567CF942C.jpeg
 
There’s about an 8 pounder swimming around with a rattletrap in its mouth...John Tanner Park lower lake. Had 6 pound test that snapped at the knot after violent strike. 2nd outing in my new kayak. This little fellow struck and fought pretty good too!
Used to fish the lower lake at Tanner a good bit. Watermelon seed trickworms skipped under overhanging trees on far long bank are good. Water is deep close to shore.
If you can be patient, in far right corner of dam is a deep brush pile that holds good ones.
Far left corner is usually huge bream beds. Bass sit on deep edge and feed there too.

Worked at John Tanner about 30 years ago. Me and the maintenance man floated down the Little Tallapoosa and caught every species of fish there is on beetle spins. Never forget that trip.
