fishing the day after a good rain?

Recommended Posts

I have my best luck after a rain with a 1/2 ounce blue/black Strike King jig, pitching around stumps and laydowns.

How many good rains ?

This weekend it downpoured on me and my fishing partner .... 3 times !  :o

Caught some fish at the feeder creek and main river of the reservoir but we caught the most with shallow, mid and deep runners right at the dam, they were concentrated not far from the valve tower.

Earlier this spring soon after ice-out we had a couple days of heavy rain and in this little pond I used to fish (which is now a parking lot for a Sams Club  :'( ), the water was murkier than I'd ever seen it.  I tied on a clown-colored X-Rap and worked it slowly to the sides of where water was flowing in from an underground tube and I caught the two biggest fish I'd ever caught there, back to back (biggest was only just under 3lbs but for that could have been one of the biggest fish in the place).  Granted this is now late summer/early fall, but a chartreuse or other brightly-colered X-Rap should do well near running water, if there is any, or pretty much anywhere else in relatively shallow water.
