    I haven’t been on the river in a couple of weeks. So, I don’t have any recent info.
    I work downtown and can see the river from our offices. There are tons of giant schools of shad working the surface around downtown. As for fishing west of town… I assume you’re talking about the stretch from Bordeaux down to Ashland City. There are a ton of backwaters down there. We used to fish in Sam’s Creek and Brush Creek a lot before I got a newer boat. We caught a lot of nice fish down in the backwaters. However, I prefer to fish either around Bordeaux on the main river or spend my time between Neely’s Bend and Old Hickory Bridge. I was hoping to fish the river this weekend, but with all the rain today, I might go to Priest instead.
