JWC Northern anglers fishing tributary

1:36 pm EDT, Oct 26, 2013 | By Trey Reid

Daryk Eckert and Roman Chapman of the Northern Division are up the Petit Jean River, the Arkansas's largest tributary in Pool 9. It's a narrow stream, probably 60 to 70 yards wide, with shallow stump fields extending about 10 to 15 yards from the bank. It also features lots of laydowns. Eckert has three bass that will weigh about 6 pounds but Chapman is still looking for his first fish. This place is a target-rich environment; it looks there could be a fish on every stump or tree in here.
