It has not rained for a while down here in the Central Valley, the Weather Channel has been promising rain for the last two weeks and today it finally came. With farmers drawing water for their new crops the river has been dropping lower and lower and the fish have been feeding on shad and crayfish greedily, I figured if I was there when it started to rain I would have a chance at a good bass. Fished the same pattern that has been working for me the past few weeks, a Mr Ugly grub on a 1/16th oz Ubolt jig head. I only had a few hours to fish and it took 45 minutes before the first bite, the fish took it and ran straight towards me. Swing and a miss. A few minutes later I had my first fish, nothing special but still good to get one.
