Leeper park was on fire today,river level was perfect.I hooked up with 8 and landed three.The biggest was 12-15 lb.Most were hold overs but a few bright chrome ones mixed in

Pretty simple rig,just a three way swivel ,dropper weight and about a 24 inch leader line with what ever you use for a bait or lure.Main line is tied onto other end of three way swivel.
