If you can give me general locations I will try and scout it myself; as long as its not to difficult to get to (was recently diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis @ 38 years old smh). I generally will try dead or artificial baits.

    Thanks!!
    Look for deep holes and eddies. Fish very first or very last light.
