    Made the haul to RF early this morning since GMR and CC are reportedly too swollen to fish/launch. RF lake was a bit high, but the docks are fine and I had no trouble. I put in around 6am and threw topwater, crankaits, jigs/grubs, spinners, and plastic worms. Nothing. I didn't take a temp, but the water is warm and unusually weedy in the shallows for this time of year if memory serves. I trolled around a bit before leaving at 9am and marked a lot of fish in the 12'-20' range on the southeast ledges.

    Got skunked, but that's one beautiful lake in the morning.
     
  2. Fished this morning. Temp 78 Water good condition. Trolling caught 1 saugeye, 1 bass, and 3 very small perch.

    Yes I have caught many Yellow Perch out of Rocky Fork. It's all about the timing and location if you want to get into the numbers.

    like traphunter said, lots of them if you know where to look. I haven't got into many big ones there though.
