    Great report! Priest is so weird when it come to temperature. I grew up fishing the Potomac River and when the water temperature was in the 40’s or 30’s, the last place you were going to try was shallow. I would have been embarrassed to even tell someone I tried fishing shallow because it was so unorthodox. However, on Priest, if you want to target shallow bass in the winter you can and if you want to target deep bass you can too. Sometimes the shallow bite is on and sometime the deep bite is on. Sadly, the only way to know is by getting out and fishing both and seeing what you come up with.

    The other week I hooked into 3 bass between 3-5lb in 1ft of water in 46 degree water…..and that was just after I left Spring Creek where it was 54!

    And so the cat and mouse game never ends:)
