Snow water. Ever heard and, if so, do you believe that the water going into the river from melted snow kills the sauger bite for a short period of time?

If the water is muddy, I would say definitely yes. If it is clear, I am not sure. The rivers that we fish are usually pretty cold any ways so I don't see how that would hurt.

When NC gets a good snow and it melts then the temps. on Douglas lake will drop quite a few degrees. This sudden change in the temp. along with the muddy water can cause them to be much more or seem much more inactive. The water temp. is a big driver to the fish and their activities. Hope this helps.

I don't get to fish for them as much as my Dad does. He's had pretty good luck this year. I had a friend catch a 7 pounder.
