You can tell it is Mid-September. The mornings have been cool with warmer weather during the mid-days. Right now, the fish are a bit sluggish and hanging off the drop off to the holes on the OFF current sides and tight in log jams and snags that are not in the main current. Like last week they require an honest 20-30 minute sit with some of the better fish coming after an even longer sit on a spot.
The forecast beginning Wednesday says that water temperatures are going to start coming down fast over the next few days. This could make the fish sit even tighter to the structure and take even a bit longer to decide to hit the bait. This is sometimes a great opportunity to fish very shallow and out of the current. Once the temps level back out in the high 50s or low 60s everything should come back for the final push of the catfish season.
Baits have remained about everything. Frogs are still producing well as are suckers if you can get them. Some fish are also coming on goldeye. It seems preference has changed almost daily so keep a couple options available.
