i was up there sunday and it was fine and that was after all that rain we got the day before. i have notice the lil saluda doesn't get as muddy as the big does. But if you go way back in the creeks i.e. clouds or indian it is muddy but as far as the main runs and mouths they were fine.
tom; the water is a good color in the little saluda. jeremy and i went yesterday. only problem was the crappie did not co-operate. i caught a 20" striper. only fished a couple of hours then the wind got up.
yeah, the wind was a pain. I used to always go find a protected area when the wind was blowing and not catch a thing. Now I just fish right where I would without wind and I do a lot better. But I do hate fighting gusty wind with the trolling motor. I wonder how the spot lock would do in that kind of wind.
Not trying to highjack here, but was on the dam Sunday and saw alot of bird action about 300 yards from the towers. They were obviously feeding on a large school of bait. Isn't it a little early for them to be this far down? I am new to the striper world and just thought that was early.
Normally it is, but the water down there is 55*, I read surface temps as high as 59* a week ago. It is 48 on the upper lake. I think some of the fish have moved back down. There are plenty of fish up top too. Seems like this will be a good year
there are fish in the lower lake now. caught some sunday out in front of spence and have a friend that has fished 6days in the last week and a half and caught fish everyday less than 5min from the towers....
