WATER LEVEL: Low
WATER TEMP: 65°F
THROW: Streamers, minnow/baitfish patterns, tube jigs, topwater
NOTES: (Updated 7/12 @ 9a) The Rocky River is low and clear but the element to pay attention to is the water temperature, which has dropped nearly 20°F in the past few days. This could put the bite off on the smallmouth temporarily, particularly in the early morning before the sun warms the water back up in midday. Smallmouth bass usually are most aggressive right before sundown, where they move to the heads of pools behind riffles to feed. Resident smallmouth bass, carp, sheephead, bluegill, and other fish be found throughout the system year-round.
