I envy you.  I got out for a little bit the other day to test out my new Daiwa  Presso ultralight .  was very impressed with the rod but man that 2 pound test nanofil  is some thin line.  Was able to catch a few but got chased off by the heat (it is still 90 degrees here).  Supposed to get a huge break in the temps starting tuesday.  Will go back out then.  Best of luck to you when you get back out.

Fishing News and Reports / backwater start-up
« Last post by ctom on Yesterday at 07:39 »
I fished a Mississippi River backwater with a buddy yesterday, looking specifically for crappies and we did indeed find some. We were fishing an area of heavy shade with minimal current and found 55 degree water where the fish were most active. I'd like to see about 10 more degrees leave the water but judging how the fishing was, the size of the crappies we were catching and the forecast for much cooler evenings for a couple days without any major rainfall to boost the water levels I think mid-next week will be a great time to expect larger fish to begin showing up. Weds is the day.

Yesterday's fish taped out at around 11 inches as an average but the area supports crappies in the 13 to 15 inch range in the fall so what we caught went back. We'll wait for the big'uns. One perch of 14" was taken yesterday too.

Looks wonderful Lamar. Back in the 60's I traveled into Ontario to hunt spring bear and do some early spring pike fishing. Back then we could sit in a boat and hear chainsaws all day long but could never find where they were cutting.....that's wilderness.

 It was maybe five years ago we could hear them cutting trees in the background. Other then that I don't ever remember hearing that. It's part of the forest management system. Not sure how long it takes for the tree to grow so they can harvest them again but they'll be back then. The nice part is they leave about a hundred yards around the lakes and roads that they don't touch. So you really don't notice it
