I have to be in Jerry’s camp on this one. Now they’re not nearly as large as Jerry, Alex, Phil’s fish but my “bigger” fish have all come on non sunglasses days. EXCEPT the one in my avatar. But water that day was some chocolate milk.

Bottom line, I am more confident about my fish catching abilities on cloudy and dreary days.

Always wear floatation! I'm a member of the Chattahoochee bobber club and it wasn't a fun ride.

#1 reason for success. Believe you are going to catch fish. If not, you're just waving a stick.

I've yet to catch a good one without strange fluffy hair.

Thus the flow is in the middle stages of its return.

Sounds like you guys need some sunrise silver lens. As long as it's not night time I have my shades on.

No chat box exists to ask questions around here, so I'll attempt to ask here.

I was hoping to fish early tomorrow morning until I saw water was being released 7-8 am. Was hoping to fish around 20 Bridge.

I saw a link earlier in the thread that said it takes up to two+ hours for the water to reach and recede near that location.

Would the water be good to fish by 10 or should I wait longer? I just really wanna fish (without being swept away of course!).

Sorry to bother!

2 Hours should be good. You'll be fishing some falling water but shouldn't be a a problem.

Fishing at 20 bridge so in a boat? float? shore? or planning to wade?

Shore. I don't fly fish... yet.

We all know college students can't afford boats

You can spin fish while wading!

But since you're at the shore you'll be fine. It's not "raging" waters but it sure gets moving fast if it is a long enough release.

Never been to the 20 bridge so I cant offer advice as to how fishable it is.

I've been plenty of times, all up and down the shore on both sides. As long as the water level is okay, I should be good to go.

Does release have any effect on trout feeding? Does more food than usual flow down the river? Always something I've wondered.
