Water temperatures throughout the state’s rivers are around 70 degrees and bass have finished spawning. This year’s high water probably did not help with the success of spawning. On turbid rivers, such as the Little Kanawha, it’s easy for nests to get covered with silt that suffocates the eggs.

I got to float the top Gauley above Summersville Dam over Memorial Weekend. This is a whitewater float and not for a novice. We managed to catch trout, walleye, and bass. It is one of the few rivers in the state where a person can expect to catch all three species of fish. The final count was 107 fish between three fishermen.

After school lets out, I plan to visit Calhoun County and run a trotline. I can’t wait, as catfishing should be around its peak time now. Good luck. If you have any fish photos from Memorial Day Weekend, send to CoryBoothe@hotmail.com.
