I have actually caught bass while fly fishing for trout in the Silverton Reservoir. So yes, they are in there. I was casting a pheasant tail nymph as well as a possy bugger from my float tube directly across from the launch. Stay out a ways from the bank and cast in under the overhanging trees/brush. You will also find some structure in spots along that area in the form of submerged limbs of downed trees, root balls, etc. The bass that hit were all very small....roughly 4" fish. Since I was not targeting bass I actually quit fishing the afternoon this happened because once I got into them I couldn't keep them off my line. I've not gone back to that reservoir to specifically fish for bass but my guess there are some bigger ones to be caught in there.
