What's up I'm thinking about hitting up the rock river tonight for some flat head. I usually go around Oregon il,which is about 2hr from me. I was just wondering if anyone has any suggestions or if anyone knows of any dams which produce???? Thanks in advanced
I went down to Oregon last year and did pretty good. Be careful because if you launch at the state launch and go towards the dam, you will be on the upriver side of the dam and it is deceiving. They have buoys out normally but this early they may not be out. Do not go over the dam in Oregon or you will be in big trouble. However, the cat fishing down there is pretty good or at least it was last year. We just looked for a hard bottom with deeper holes or under cut banks. Then we just used a slip sinker rig with suckers and they were willing to hit. I like the advice about the curly tails and jerkbaits as well. Never know what you could get down there. Good luck and stay safe.
