First I should mention that the conditions of alternate dock and ramp have improved since my last visit back in March. The concrete dock now has a rub-rail and some vertical 2x4s to help protect boats from the abrasive concrete.
A big improvement!
We launched at about 7:15 and fished until about 2:00. Water was heavily stained with less than two feet visibility. Level appeared to be full pool. Surface temp was 80 degrees with a slight drop closer to the dam. Rick boated a small redeye on a 5XD and I brought a small bass up to the surface on a wacky rigged 4" pumpkin senko.
It's always a good day to go fishin' but, not necessarily catchin'.
