winter prep

I've been on the Kankakee over in Illinois a lot lately kayaking and canoeing, lots to learn with the extreme low water. There are several areas I've fished hard in the winter with poor results. Turns out there's hardly any water in these areas. The areas that have produced consistently in winter still have water in them and fish. Sounds simple but were talking one mile stretches or more. In the high water of winter there are lots of good looking eddies along the shore now I understand why some produce consistently and others don't. I've operated this way on the smaller streams for years nice to get some answers on the big river. Bottom line if you can stay on the river fall through winter it's a much easier transition. I've been picking up nice fish on the flats above and below deep holes using flukes.
