Not a report but a question. Years ago I used to come down every spring for the white bass run. This was before anyone knew about the Asian carp. Have the Asian carp impacted the white bass population in anyway? Thanks for any feedback.

Simon  river is flooded, starved rock boat launch was under 5 feet of water 6 days ago that entire section of park is closed. Be lucky if they have it cleaned up by memorial day. River is still way high and muddy.

I drove by the river Saturday afternoon, and it looked just a tad up from its normal level.  When I drove by on Sunday, the river was way over its banks.  Everything is flooded around the river.

I took the boat out for 2 hours today. Water is high and dirty. Only caught a few drum. Rain moved in and I moved out! I would wait another week.

The river is starting to drop but it still is a dirty mess with debris floating, went by barto landing today and water was at top of the ramp, by the weekend it should be a little better but definitely not ideal
