Rocky River

Tip of the week 

With warm weather in the forecast, the smallie and carp fishing should continue to improve. Smallie action has been heating up with plenty of fish willing to take streamers and crayfish patterns. With the warm days in the forecast, don't be afraid to get your top-water game going. Casting poppers and sliders into cover will become more and more effective as the summer progresses. When targeting carp, make sure to focuses mainly on feeding carp, and cast small crawfish patterns or other carpflies into their "feeding zone". Try to be as stealhy as possibe, river pigs are notoriously spooky, especially in low flows.

Seven-day forecast 

Flows are low as of now and there is rain in the forecast for later in the week. With flow being low most of the summer now would be the time to get out and try to pick up some resident smallies.
