Figured I'd give an update from the past 4 days. Not a lot has changed honestly. The white bass are very thick from Snake Creek and further south. The hybrids are slowly filtering in along with some very nice stripers. The river continues to drop and extreme caution is needed from Ringer to Brush Creek as there are some trees just under the surface that can cause a bad day really fast. The water is very clear also and the fish have preferred more natural colored baits.

Really looking forward to these warming temps this week!

That’s what I expected, beautiful weather, water temp rising, and the bigger ones are heading up!!! Now if we could get the water to rise (HINT COE), it would be perfect, great fish pate

Loved fishing there when I lived in Beulah Al in the 80's. Also had some awesome hybrid fishing at Riverview spillway and at the old mill run.

Got the boat and rods ready! That first pic looks like a reel burner, hope to hang into a few of those this year. Save some for the rest of us now, my fishing partner said it was too cold Saturday, haha. I need to get him an eskimo suit I guess
