Re: Lower Illinois River (Gore, OK)
I have a feeling those guys don't stick to their schedule very well. When I got there it was alright to fish. By their schedule, it should have remained that way. Needless to say, it didn't. I heard the sirens at least two times, and noticed a serious increase in water level and speed. Would have made for some fun tubing, but it didn't help the fishing a bit.
My normal this time of year is morning deer hunting and afternoon fishing. I may have to make some adjustments.
