Nice one. From my limited experience fishing in the colder months, the bite and drop is common.A couple other solid plunks of the ol’ banjo string but no commitment to holding the bait.
Did I run into you last year or early this year? Ran into a guy swinging black buggers/streamers in that spot. I asked what color was working for you. You said you got one really nice one.Nice one there! I was out on Sunday as well fishing below the Dupage confluence and up into the east branch just a few hundred yards. Nothing to show for it unfortunately. I was swinging larger streamers, smaller leach patterns and flashy rubber-legged, bead headed wooly bugger with my fly rod. Even tied on a large hopper to hit a sunny bank in the afternoon. Figured why not try something topside if nothing was working deep but no dice.
