I was up there about a month ago, water was really low, imagine it hasnt gotten much better. We usually do pretty good in the spring up there, not sure about now.

Actually right now is one of the better times of the year to be hitting the channel bite up this way and around ER. They are finished with spawning and putting on the :feed bag" for cooler temps with fall coming.

I never have had much luck during spring time/higher water times. If the current is up and flowing, they spread out too much. When the water is low and slow, they congregate in certain areas.

I would look for any holes deeper than 10-12', cut up some sucker on a 6/0 gama octi circle, on a med. action rod with 20-30ln mono, about 2-3 onces of bank or no-roll sinker and about 8-10" of leader from weight to the hook. Cast out at first right in the hole (boat or shore), put rod on Y stick or in holder and NO clicker. wink WSatch the tip and hope for a 15lb plus fish.

Between 2,3 or 4 guys, you hit it right, it is just like a good bite on the Chain during ice time. Just slightly bigger and a good chance at a 20lber and over 50 fish a night.

Good luck.
