The Hooch at jones bridge and down river can be very muddy at times after a good rain, but it will usualy clear up in a couple of days and then the fishing can be very productive. I have fished the area several times and have had some very good luck with nymph fishing and small wooly buggers. A float tub or some type of floating device is needed to fish past the access ramp at the park. Once you get past the access ramp the population of people will become small and the fishing should get better because this area is not reachable by land or trail bacause of private property. It usually takes about 4-8 hours to float to the next bride at Holcomb Bridge Rd. depending on how much time you take to stop and fish along the way. There are alot of shoal areas that hold some nice fish and also some areas that could be good for dry fly fishing also. My self I have take fish.... a fish as big as 16" and have seen bigger ones caught. But most fishs will range from 10" to 12" and don't be fooled these fish area strong.
I hope this will help you out and e-mail me and let me know if you catch one to brag about or if you need a partner to fish the area with and we can....Hook-up and catch some fish.
