I was there a week ago, very hot. John deer mini jig got it done for us. Olive bugger landed the bigger fish. Fewer fish, but bigger.

I fished right off the front of the steps at the bridge and caught fish all day long. No one around us had any luck.
I put a bugger on sinking line and got it down deep under the bridge. I had a few short strikes, trimmed the tail and started hooking up.

I have fished there at the bridge quite a few times and never seem to do very well for some reason
