    Don't throw your bait at the middle of the brush pile.

    Start 3' from the edges and work your way to maybe 1' away. Hungry fish will attack without you getting snagged. Of course sometimes the fish rushes out, grabs your bait, and swims back in.

    It's going to be May by the time they get Green River Lake down enough to use them. 17' above summer pool and rain like crazy the next few days.
