"Slough" fishing

Recommended Posts

I am thinking about fishing the Sacramento slough this weekend.  Was there lst year but was unable to catch anything.,  Thing is, IT has to have some nice bass in it.  The slough it self is about 2-3 miles long and flows into the Sacramento river.  

Most of my fishing has been in reserviors or lakes.  Any tips, techinques you guys can help me with in fishing this slough?

Thanks! ???

tie on a search bait and a slow bait.  my bet would be one rod rigged with a crankbait, spinnerbait, or jerkbiat, and another rod rigged with a senko.  find spots where the current is blocked, or forms into pools.  throw the fast bait, and if they dontt ake that, then throw the senko at them

Find cover in the current and throw a jig in there and let it driftright past the cover. Also find dead water(No Current) and pitch and flip a senko.

I agree with the above, I used to fish the Ohio alot.  The key is to find current breaks.  Any and all!  Current , current, current.  Bass don't like it- well they don't like to fight it, they like it because it brings them easy meals, and more oxygen, but they don't like to be directly in it.  If you find rocks on the bottom or laydowns on the banks, and you have a swift current throw past the structure and let the bait swim past it.  That presents a more natural presentation.  Don't overlook the smallest current breaks either! Good Luck

 Should I use weight on the Senko?  Or just throw it weightless?
