The fishing was hit and miss at the Branch this weekend. Fish are still fairly shallow. I heard of 6 or 7 fish caught during the weekend. Three came from 6' of water along the south shore from the east ramp up to the dam. Those fish came on chartreuse firetiger Lil Ernies shortlined. Three other fish came on 5" Tuff Shads, one by the spillway near the first bay, one over the hump by Goose Island and the third is unknown. I heard of two others caught, one near the dam and one by a walleye angler with a Hotntot at the mouth of Silver Creek bay. Other fish were lost neer the causeway and near Goose Island. Smaller baits still seem to be the ticket. I'll be at Leesville next Saturday. I've heard that the bite has been decent there of late.
