Hey Toolman. Your best bet is Shoals Creek. Go under the bridge and fish in the bends of the creek. CAught some fish in brush creek about 2 weeks ago which is the first creek on the right past the second bend. Fish a minnow rig with a 3/4 or 1 ounce weight with two hooks pegged above them. Also called a bottom bounce rig or a drop shot rig. Drop it to the bottom, reel up about twice and drift around in 18-25 feet of water, or even deeper keeping the bait close to the bottom.

Is brush creek on the right just past the marina with house boats and gas pump. Not the marina beside the new bridge.

Our river house is near Happy Hollow bridge.

yes, just past the marina on the right as the creek starts to straighten out again.
