~900 and ~1.00' measured out of Wilmington. Looks like the Sunday night rains had minimal impact on the river looking at the gauge now. Floating grass was sparse, definitely an issue in eddies. ~2' vis. 10hr wade lol, I'm still sore. I had a day though, the fishing was on fire. Started the morning with topwater but it never really was the ticket. Rotated between a 3.25" swimbait, 3" chigger craw, and the zman boar hogz. The later two on an 1/8oz owner finesse football jig. More on the swimbait but I threw it more to cover water, craw/hogz to work an area thoroughly. Fish choked the swimbait whole more often than not. Fish still relating hard to current. I saw a couple smallies cough up shad near my feet over the day. A lot of smallies, a lot of dinks though. Best smallie was a skinny 19.75". Six walleye including the two better ones on back to back casts in the same spot.
