Gauley River

Waded upper Gauley river from 10am to 5pm. Caught 14 smallmouth bass, 2 largemouth bass, 4 rock bass, and 1 walleye. Most fish were caught on a 4"stickworm. Water was low and very clear which made fish extremely spooky. Had to make long casts to get bit which also related to many missed fish. Largest fish was an 18" walleye caught on a 4" grub.
