Is it wadable / bank fishable at forks of the river?

Parts can be bankable from the WMA down there, but if they are schooling on the other side, you're just gonna get a lot of casting practice. The other key is current. It's been my experience that you are wasting your time if you are fishing for them when no current is being generated from the dams.

I've always fished for them on the shoals during no generation. They like the fast water. I usually put in at 3 river boat ramp and run up either the FB or the holston to the shoals and anchor or pull onto the shoal and wade. My dad and I used to do that alot when I was growing up. There are several boat ramps on the FB if you have a canoe or boat to access the shoals as the white bass migrate upstream over the next month. I haven't done it in a couple of years though, its hard to pull myself away from the bronzebacks this time of year.
