Crappie Basics 129: River Tips

River fishing is usually based upon current. When current is slow it opens options by making more spots fishable.

Points are places that can be good. A fish likes to go from 18 feet to 14 feet and 6 feet quick and easy. Points offer that option. When fishing a point pay attention to the shade. We’ve found that crappie prefer the side that provides the most shade. When the sun gets high the fish are often deep. –TJ Stallings
