Cats have a migration that they follow each year. For the most part, not all, they move downstream to winter in deep slack water. When things warm up, they start to move back upstream looking for lunch and a place to make babies. When winter sets in, above the dam and in spring below the dam. This is a very simplified explanation, as there are many variables that are added to the equation. Feeder creeks, runoff, back waters and current all play into where all fish stay for any season. Thirty-four degrees is not too cold, but deep slack water will be place to start.
