I stopped by Rooster Rock yesterday on my way through. I hammered the Bass! They wouldn't leave chart/white Clouser minnow alone. I hooked 20 and landed 15 in just over an hour. Most were in the 12-13" range but one went 18". I think I just hit perfect conditions. That was my first time fishing there. It took a little bit to get over the "clothing optional" aspect, but hey, I guess naked people are just regular people but without clothes.

Were you fishing the wind dams or just plain weeds?

Bass on the fly...

I don't think any thing is as much fun than Smallies on the fly, except maybe a Large Mouth on a Popper with a feather body...makes me smile just thinking of it...

I got them in central Oregon at the Crane Lodge, small head with a cup formed in the front tapering back toward the rear of the hook and what looks like long hackle tied in line with the body. They come in a variety of sizes starting at size 10 and working up the chain. Very effective with a shooting head floating line, great early summer fly for Davis Lake, did a Bass round up last year with ODFW and a few other sites.

I once took a trip to Camp Sherman at the Metolious (sp) river and stood with my mouth open like everyone else. The fish under the bridge were amazing...I mean these fish were trophy sized and quite a few of them. Of course it is closed to angling....I watched as people tossed crackers and Cheetos into the water and the fish came up and attacked them.
I tried for months to tie up a Cheetos fly; but to no avail....but a Senko fly does seem plausible, I will give it a try and post a picture if it turns out; maybe some Rabbet or other fur would work.
You would think that ODFW would open Davis Lake up to some no holds bared fishing for the illegally introduced Large Mouth Bass..I don't think that lake could hold all the boats that would show up. I know I would be in line...;)
