    Put in at Moscow at first light the river was at pool and there was not alot of current.We trolled crankbaits most of the day covered a ton of water.We cought about 60 fish in about seven hours.It set up to be a typical summer pattern.The fish were scattered and were not to aggresive.We were catching alot of wipers but nothing big 2-3lbs a few white bass 4-smallmouths 1-sauger,and around ten big drum.The bait of the day was a SR7S it out fished everything we tried.I think that a good rain would improve things.We just needed some current to get the fish to set up on cover and current breaks.We cought most of the fish in 10 to 12 feet of water.The water temp was 68 to 72 degrees yesterday.

    We were fishing in 12 to 15 feet of water bumping bottom. A SR7S is a shad rap 7 foot diving suspending crank bait.I was using a shad color with a orange belly.There are a lot of crank baits you can use.I know that rapplas aren`t cheap but they track perfect right out of the box.I use a lure retreiver because you do get hung from time to time.Last week I did not lose a single lure to a snag.
