    Feels like its time to hit the river for some sauger. The river looks to be at least 4 to 5 feet below what it takes to start fishing but, it's about that time.

    I heard of a few catches recently but looks like the river will be blown out for a few days now.

    A fishing buddy and I went to Greenup this morning to try our hand at the sauger finally. Fished 4 hours with all different colors of jigs and minnows. The water clarity was 6-8 inches, water was at 16 feet when we got there and a bit over 21 when we left. Not a single sauger bite. I managed the only bite of the day, and landed a 22 inch walleye or like I like to call her, supper.

    Water is being blown out and supposed to be past 42 feet tomorrow. Looks like it will be a week or two before being fishable again. It was a good day to be on the water, regardless of the bite.
