...Looks to me like they may be moving into the shallows. I kayak fish with a #4 fly rod and hopper/dropper technique in the slews between Lucy's branch and the Nuke plant. Fished only 2 slews yesterday (3-6 PM) and tore 'em up. Some were tiny, but I had at least 10 keepers. Let them all go. Bream seem to be quite a bit smaller on Wheeler than on Guntersville. I believe this is because of less plants/micro organizms in addition to a muddy bottom with rocks. Guntersville is much more lush. If there are other kayak fisherman on Wheeler that would like to get together some weekend, I'd probably be up for it.
