I haven't been to Black Water, but I was back there checking all the bridges. I will be going back there this winter sometime to fish off the bridges for crappie, and probably a few bass. Larry, maybe no one on this fishing forum fishes at Black Water. You got no replies. I bet you could catch some fish off the bridges now. I think it's time, don't you?
Just talked with a friend of mine and 3 of them fished the bridges around Blackwater Sunday. They had 16 keeper crappie several nice largemouths, 1 keeper rockfish and throw backs of all species. Sounds like a good day to me.
