  4. I'm heading to Geist Reservoir this afternnon/evening... Where are the best bank fishing spots for bass? Thanks guys!

    1. Scott Sorrell 0
      I part on White River Parkway, on the west side of the river. There are small parking areas right off the street. Then just walk down the hill to the river.
    2. Brandon Wild 0
      I've considered stopping there to fish under the bridge by the mouth of that little inlet... But where do you park for that though?
    3. Scott Sorrell 0
      Another place to consider is White River.....I fish along the bank between 10th street and Michigan St and catch nice smallmouth and largemouth
    4. Scott Sorrell 0
      I fish a jig and trailer around the bridge rip rap...have has some luck in the past....have not been this year
    5. Brandon Wild 0
      I haven't had much luck fishing from along the bridge... Never tried walking past the parking lot and fishing that bank though
    6. Scott Sorrell 0
      Bank fishing is good at Eagle Creek Reservoir. You can park in the lot on the north side of the road just after you cross the 56th street bridge.
      Fishing along ...more the steep bluff area is good and also anywhere along the bridge is good.
    7. Brandon Wild 0

    8. Scott Sorrell 0
