We made multiple trips this morning fishing with various family members and friends, and the overall report is that fishing is slow. On the positive side, there seem to be plenty of fish of good size. We tried various colors of Power Bait and found the bite to be subtle. The result of that was plenty of escapees who ate the bait but missed the hook. Water remains high with Table Rock being still 12 feet above flood pool. The river level at Houseman remains so high that there is no bank to fish from! As you will see in the photographs it is still beautiful out there, despite the water level and despite the heat. If you decide to wet a line, go early to enjoy the morning misty air and stay hydrated.
