    I heard that last weekend it was very good. Were headed over Next Wednesday and I'll know more. It's time for them to start dusting the bottom.

    I just got back from Martinez and lake Alamo. Flipping plastics like brush hogs/worms/senkos up close to any trees or reeds will do the trick. Inside all the little coves in the upper part is good.

    The river is very high and projected to go even higher. Normal summer flow rate is ~9,400 cf/s. Right now it’s over 11,000 cf/s and is projected to go to 12,500 cf/s. The spawn is pretty much winding down so the red hot fishing is over but fish are being caught. I addition to the usual flipping and blades, slow crankbaits will also produce fish. Good fishing.
