    Default Wading for crappie in spring?

    Anyone have any luck around here wading for crappie when the water goes way up in the trees with the spring rains? I have access to land on Nolin up Rock Creek and was considering trying it this year.

    I haven't "waded" for Crappie during Spring high water times .... but I have caught some nice Crappie from the bank during those times, and right against the bank alongside wood cover. I see no reason why it wouldn't work if the timing & conditions were right !!

    I use to wade for crappie at grenada when we lived in MS but have not tried it here. When the water was high enough last year the timing did not seem right (at least to me). I think it could be a good strategy if the conditions are favorable. Right now it looks like there may be lots of backwater to wade. Good luck .
    Yes, as a matter of fact, I do have a retirement plan...FISHING!

    If conditions are right this year I'll try it for sure!
