Nick and I fished the Whitewater yesterday. The weather was beautiful; the fishing was tough. The water temp was cold and I think this had something to do with the low activity. We threw everything we had and we were frustrated by the lack of results. The water was off color, but I do not think that was the only reason for the slow day. I think smallies like a classic hot and humid Cincinnati summer. This weather might be great for your backyard cookout, but not the best for fishin’. I tied on a red & black Beldar and that saved my day with a couple of smallies that liked what I was stripping.
