    Fished the upper Rock this evening for a couple of hours and was well rewarded with these two brutes and about a dozen smaller ones. All released unharmed. They were all caught on Berkley powerbait 3” smelt on a chartreuse jig and a Gitzit crawfish tube jig worked slowly on the bottom in deep pools. Visability is 15”+, also saw a couple of beat up steelhead in the river too.

  2. Nice Pics....not too much better than fishing the smallies when they are active. How far up river did you fish???? Without giving up your honey hole off course. lol.

    I was at the rock today and I was say visibility was a lot greather then that where i was fishing. It might be the clearest I have ever seen the river.

    It’s the same area that I catch steelhead when they're in. It’s the public area south of the boat docks but north of the big rock and fallen tree. ;)

    You’re exactly right, the water is gin clear. I fished where I couldn’t see the bottom.
     
  6. Seems like time well spent. Nice Fish!

    has anyone seen smallies that big by the harpersfield bridge? thats the only place my family can fish and there seems to be large numbers of medium smallies there. srry thats the grand but anyway.
     
  8. Fished Rock today. Caught 4. Best luck on original Rapala (black/white). One fish about 14". Water was a little stained but perfect IMO.
