this are an excellent area to look for fish. Very often
they will be right up against the bank. In this case
there was a small beaver right up against the bank (center
of photo). Banks like this offer a wide variety of food
sources for game fish. If you study this photo you'll
see that there are a lot of rocks along the bank. One
thing that's not as apparent is the fact that a lot
of the brush has fallen into the water. This provides
cover for bait fish.
or jigs pitched under the brush are good choices. Remember
that there are a millions ways to snag in areas like
this so be careful. Moving into the bank to free a lure
that's been hung on a branch is a good way to spook
any fish in the area. Accurate casting is a must. Try
to get your offering as close to the bank as possible
and swim it back very slowly.
