Bennett Spring Fishing Report for 10-20-2011

How's Fishing?
This last month of fishing has been the best of the whole season. The water is gin clear, running at normal levels and the weather has cooperated with us at every turn. It rained last night, and the water level is up a little bit, but this weekend should be another perfect one.
We would like to thank you all for your continued patronage. Weaver's will be having a customer appreciation this weekend with an increasing percentage off each day of the weekend. We will be cooking hot dogs and we will have free coffee and lemonade as well.
