West Fork on Saturday
« on: December 30, 2013, 10:20:48 AM »
My buddy and I had plans to fish below Nickajack but the water is still too high so we set off for the West Fork Saturday morning.  Within 10 minutes, I tied into a fiesty little smallie and a spotted bass, both in about 20 ft of water.  As the day progressed, we hit an area that was loaded with little whites.  He and I both had a blast throwing a 3" grub...I decided to leave the fly tackle at home and sure wished I had taken one.

They weren't the biggest but I was thinking we would be lucky to even get a bite when we launched around 6:30 and it was still in the 20's.  Nice little trip for my last excursion in 2013.

Thanks for the heads up.

Good to hear someone got on some fish. I fished lower priest Saturday and only caught a few bass. Was going to go where you went but thought it would have been too muddy.  Hopefully get up there soon.

That was my first trip to that area and I look forward to going again.  Now, we have to figure out how to make the idiots with the 250 hp motors slow down when going through an area the size of a 2 lane road.  Respect for others has gone away.

Yes sir it has and it is a shame.
