Re: Wade fishing question....
When fishing big rivers it's often best to fish a hole from all points possible before moving on. Get out. Head to the next fishy looking pool. If you don't get hits early. Move on. If you catch fish. Fish it until the fishing slows down. Then move on. Don't waste too much time on hunches and look for the most promising lies. I also always wade up. Wading downstream would end in a lot of days not catching much as I would just have a never ending silt trail in front of me.
