Yes some will move up rivers with sandbass - and usually just a tad earlier - I have caught hybrids from Skiatook waaay up Hominy creek in my jet boat in March and April - its especially good up there about a week following any 2-3" rains on the watershed
Skiatook Morone movements are more due to O2 levels and water quality/turbidity/ forage availability - not much in the way of current to get fish in a spawn migratory pattern. After and during hard blows, during April, you will find sandbass spawning on windblown banks, and the hybrids will be right with them
Those who would give up constitutional freedoms to elected officials in exchange for a false sense of security, deserve neither freedom or security.
