High Water...Good or bad for spawning?


Recommended Posts

This was alluded to in the poll topic on spawning and something I've been wondering about the last couple years. It seems the high water would open up some new habitat and make some of the usual spawning habitat unusable due to higher flow. Would Smallies use the new habitat the higher water opened up, or do they always return to the same areas? Can we expect some not so great year-classes from the last 2-3 years on our local rivers?

i believe that high water after they hatch can be worse as the fry move into the new flooded areas and get caught as the levels drop. rich
