MOON PHASE (66%)
Waxing Gibbous

Went out on Saturday morning and got 2 nice smallies on a Whopper Plopper 75 size in perch colors.

Rest on jigs.

I missed a pike and a really nice small mouth on the downside current of a fallen tree.

Current was still very fast and most fish were tight in or next to cover, any place they could get a break from the super fast current which was visible all the way to Rochester dam.

I remember catching 2 dink Largemouths that day, one was by the overflow dam on the east side and the other one was more downstream somewhere can't remember the exact spot :-)  If you see a blue camo vibe seaghost be sure to say hi.  I hope to fish the river between the dams at least once more unless we get some really bad weather in Oct :-)

The white river runs right into the Fox after echo lake....in a really short distance. So are you asking where you can access the Fox and go upstream towards echo lake?

MOON PHASE
First Quarter

Late post from yesterday.  

Did ok on pannies, also caught a couple of Suckers, Drum, Warmouth, and Carp.  Lots of small Perch - that was nice to see.  The bite was actually pretty good. 

Crawlers halfs with a vertical presentation. 

Was happy to catch some Yellow Bass - they have thick shoulders. You get more meat off of a 7 inch Yellow Bass than a 8 inch Gill.  

Also, Yellow Bass taste identical to Gills, not fishy at all like White Bass can be. 

My wife came along too - was a nice afternoon. 

Fished between the Rochester and Waterford Dam.  

Lots of sorting and throwing back junk fish, but managed enough pannies for a fish fry.

Snorkel,

The White below Echo lake is very wade-able. Just jump in up by the dam and wade down. I used to do this all the time. Smallies under the bridges.
