What did you use?

Does the water get lower there during the summer? The place is just amazing, too bad it's so deep. I saw a fish jumping, so fish are there, but how the hell do I get my spinner on the bottom of that hole? I need to tie 10oz ball to it or something :lol:

It looked like you were at Waterloo, if thats the case I was up at the boatramp. little calmer up there. I was throwing everything at them. bobber with jig/prawn/pinkworm. working a corky off the bottom. there was a guy that hooked into one but didn't land it. most boats were leaving empty handed. people were saying the water was too cold.

There was 3 Springers that i know of caught out of there today. Anatoliy you need a bigger rod 12-25 8'6" will do . Use a 1 oz inline weight with 2 foot of leader to a 4-6 blue fox. Little cleos and crocodiles work well also. Kodiak is right about the hi cold flows not being good for hardware right now. However i disagree with not being close to the bottom, i have caught 100 + springers right where you were standing on hardware. I make a long cast into the heavy current and drift it through the hole. When using a spoon i do the same thing but when rounding the corner of your cast rip the spoon from near the bottom thats when you will get 80% if your fish. Steelhead fishing has been realy hot at the deadline, bobber and jigs.

Totally a rumor.. lol. They HATE First bite salmon jigs. Especially with a prawn on the end. Don't use those. Fish hate them.
