The Rocky River Fishing Report for Tuesday, July 28, 2015

WATER LEVEL: very low
CLARITY: clear
FLOW: very slow
THROW: spinners/spoons, tube jigs, jerkbaits, woolly buggers, streamers
GRAPHS: See real-time USGS water graphs here!
NOTES: (Updated 8:05 am) The Rocky River remains very low, slow, and as clear as it will ever get. It's tough bass fishing for midday in this heat, but fish will feed actively at sunrise and before sunset. If you're a sight-fisherman for tailing carp, these are very favorable conditions provided you don't spook them on your approach! Resident smallmouth bass and powerful carp, among other species, are in the river all summer long. If you're new to river smallmouth, here's a guide for you that WILL get you into some fish.
