: PARKER STRIP: Smallmouth bite is hot right now on the Parker Strip. Several anglers over the weekendhad success with both nightcrawlers and even soft baits. Water temps are still cool -- in the low to mid 60s. Worms were also working well for the large hybrid redears known to occupy this stretch of river.
The Parker Strip is currently being drawn down (about 1 vertical foot) for annual maintenance on the canals on the reservation water system and waterfront properties. It should be raised back up to normal winter levels on Monday, Jan. 19.
