      Nice! Caught a 5 on rough river lake this past summer. Saw one twice it’s size later and she wouldn’t hit anything. There’s some giants in there.

      Hey Michael Good hear your coming to Knox. Plus do some fishing. Coming from Knox you could put in at Axtel off Hwy 79 on the right some call it Nicks marine. When ...more you launch your boat use the small ramp to the left when looking at the lake. The early bite has been good you can put in at this ramp and spend early morning and late day. Try throwing a pop -r around the cuts and the floating docks also mix in some throws with a jig, or zoom speed craw green TR. They are some good fishing around the marina area. Just don't catch the 5 pounder I caught the other morning. When you go out of the marina go to first point on left good throw zoom 10 worm or speed Craw jig something will stay on bottom. Try drop shot. Find good points with some depth near them I like to drop shot them with senko type worm the key you have got to stay in contact with bottom. Just make note of it on weekends the lake is overrun with ski boats lot of boat traffic. But in the week it is nice. Also night fishing is good. Hope you do good Chris Ephesians 3:20
    2. Nice Fish. I am visiting in a few days and just inherited my dads bass boat and have some experience fishing but never on Rough River. I will be staying near Ft. ...more Knox with my brother that just retired from the Army. Any advice you can give us and where to launch from to do some bass fishing this time of year would be appreciated. Thanks

      What part of the lake is this? I've been all over Rough River Lake and I don't recognize this at all. It looks like a good spot to access for some bank ...more fishing.
