Planned to fish the Lower Illinois River in Oklahoma by the Power Plant. When we arrived, we noted the river was high and the current was strong. They were generating power, so we went to our backup plan… fishing for trout at a place we never been to before… Marval RV Resort.
Since it is further downriver, we hoped the current would be slower and wadeable. It was still flowing fast and wading would be a hazard other than protected areas near the bank.
No worries… learned a few things about the area, caught a fish or two as well as one trout by our Fishing Buddy.
Check out the video as we fish a new place by trial and error!
