Got some nice rockfish wade fishing the caney over the summer. Had a 14 fish night this year all in about 5 hours ( all 14 was over 20 lbs). Biggest all year was 42 pounds. But it seems like they have about moved out of the caney. Wade fishing these things is awesome such a rush to be in the water with these fish after dark and having them hit topwater. guess its time to start hitting the musky and deer hunting now.

If fishing is interfering with your business, give up your business

I was wading in Happy Hollow a week ago on high water just before dark and saw a very large one cruise past me, had to be chasing the 20lb mark.

Are they dieing, being fished out, or do they move somewhere like down/up the river?
