Jonny, various paddle tails have been the ticket for me too. Agree that there are too many people on the Riverwalk but I live super close and am lazy so I just put up with them! I fish the whole downtown stretch and just keep walking and casting, it amazes me that fish seem to hold just about anywhere, especially under present conditions. It would be so simple to just walk right up the middle, but I would attract too much unwanted attention and probably get chased out so I stick to the sidewalks. I'm sure other stretches hold bigger and more fish, but like I said it's convenient and easy so I keep going back. Hope to see you out there sometime!
Here's a brute I caught the other night (I go after work and it gets dark early now):
