Low Water, Good and Bad (Week of Nov. 6-12)

November 13, 2017

Well the good news is there's plenty of opportunity to do some wade fishing on the Little Red, water conditions are very low with occasional light generation.  The bad news is that the big fish are not moving up on the shoals as much.  During low water I'm seeing fish on the shoals early in the morning and late in the evening when fishing pressure is low.  Any disturbance from wading or boats pushes the fish off the shoals.  The classic egg pattern and Redass dropper is working well when there's enough water to maintain a good drift.  When the water is very low I usually go with no strike indicator and a size 16-18 sow bug or peasant tail because the fish are very spooky.  With virtually no rain in the forecast we will likely see low water conditions continuing for awhile.
