of river is filled with rocks like this. All of these
rocks create a current break which holds fish. Sometimes
each individual rock will hold a fish. Very often the
game fish will move in to feed on the bait fish that
use the rocks as shelter. These are the visible rocks.
There are many more that are not visible and because
of this, you must use extreme caution when boating in
an area like this.
Live bait drifted
down into the eddy's is the best way to catch fish.
The fish will often grab any meal that floats by. If
you land something on top of them, you're more likely
to spook them.
Lures should be cast beyond the target and retrieved
slowly. Be ready to get the fish in quickly because
your line can come in contact with the sharp/abrasive
rocks and break. Be ready to experiment with different
hooks because it's very easy to snag on rocks like this.
If you're catching fish, do not move in to retrieve
a snagged lure. Chances are you'll spook any fish that
are present. The other thing to consider is that you
may damage your boat.
