Report: Anyone using Rotary Park access on Victory Dr., Columbus, Ga. Take the river south to Pecan Orchard (on right of river) white bass, crappie, and hybrid are biting right now. Back up river at the Eagle Phenix dam the catfish are biting cut bait. The 'skip jack' are running and can be caught two at a time with a double jig set up. This upper portion offers access to downtown Columbus' Broadway area with numerous eating establishments available. I would suggest the Olive Branch Cafe among many of the fine ones' available. Take this fishing adventure and have some fun. And 'Good Luck' fishing.
