At what wind speed would you say it becomes extreamly tough to jig the upper DR (let's say the ren cen area just for kicks)?

East winds aren't bad for the river, at least the mouth where i fish. It's the south wind that really gets it rough. Just a 10 mph south wind will create 3-5 footers right at the mouth...

are you talking about the mouth at erie?
Yep. All those channels that lead out into the lake right at the mouth...the horse island channel, fort yacht clud channel, sugar island channel, ect all get really rough in any kind of a south wind. Once you had a bit up river it gets less rough. However, any other kind of wind is usually fine, i think a north wind is the best for that part of the river.

However, now if it is sunny, you will usually get a good lake breeze from the south during the afternoon. It can get tricky in a smaller boat like ours, because there is rarely a day when it's not rough...
