How to Fish Rising and Falling Water with Patrick Walters

Fri, May 13, 2022

Bassmaster Elite angler, Patrick Walters, has spent years fishing reservoirs with rising and falling water levels, which is a common challenge often posed to anglers looking to make the most of their time on the water. On southern reservoirs, such as Santee Cooper lakes in the South Carolina lowcountry, water levels can always be changing during the spring, and as the water level falls, fish will pull back from shallow spawning flats and move closer to deep water. As water levels rise, bass typically flood the bank in search of newly created cover in the water and ambush points to feed.
