There are shore spots all along the river from the dam in jefferson all the way down to Blackhawk. Just look for the masses of people and try and find a spot to fit in!

I enjoyed it haven't had the time to get out otherwise. Was surprised on the crappie considering the area I was at. I didn't keep anything was just there to get out. Plus all I had was my rod and a few different jigs no bucket or stringer

Finally got for a bit today after going the bank played around for about 2 hrs, 3 shorts, a nice sized buffalo snagged in the tail and a 7 nice sized crappie smallest was right around 10" and biggest almost 13-1/4" and 3 smaller ones
Can anyone tell what the launch prices are in fort? I know Jefferson is $5 that's the only place I've launched on the river before thinking of taking the boy farther down river tomorrow just to get the boat out. Thanks in advance
Perch-Slammer I hear you on that but it was very cold this morning and fingers were numb. I just wanted to concentrate on my next bite lol. This guy was a very big jerk to another guy on the water and i really hope he sees this or someone knows who i am talking about. If i find out he was a guide I will blast his butt on social media.

Report: Fished from 0700-1330 hrs. Launched at Groeler Rd and already had a line at 0630 hrs. Hit the deep hole south of the launch by the bar. Caught 13 shorts and one keeper. Live bait and gulp worked. No particular color.
-Observed what looked to be a fishing guide (asian male (blue suit) with two white guys) in a newer 20 foot tan Alumnacraft tiller anchored up yelling at another guy who was going up river with rigs. Does anyone know if this guy was a guide? I can't believe how UN-professional he was screaming across the water and using profanities. Did he think he owned the water and could prevent people from fishing near him? This is a river and tight quarters and we all need to respect each other out there. Just because you anchor in a spot does not give you the right to cast where ever and not have boats come in. Mind you the guy in the other boat wasn't even close he was like 30 plus feet away. Boats were getting closer than that. I am very interested if anyone knows this guide service if he is one. Shame on him. Tight lines and get to the launches early and please be courteous.

I fished just above the 26 bridge last Sunday and did well. I was wondering if anyone thinks that launching in town on Sunday would be better as far as parking goes. It was packed (putting it mildly) at the Groeler Rd. launch. I plan on getting there about 6:30 am.
