Wow, sure is crazy to see this. A mile of exposed road at the bottom of the lake and foundations to old homes... and not a boat on the water. I will post more pics in a little while but heres a few until then.

I guarantee you will catch more fish! Those fish must just be piled on top of each other right now! It is time for a fury of magic carpets to slay the Foster:dance: puddle!!!
Combat Chuck said:I tried to fish it twice this weekend. Saturday morning from the bank got me a couple of largemouth. Sunday was a skunk... very odd things out there. Saturday the trout were jumping constantly but I think we were a little out of reach from them. It was sunny and warm saturday then sunday a storm came blowing in. I took the pontoon up sunday in search of those trout only to find nothing jumping and did not catch a stinkin fish. These are my first 2 attempts here so I'm no expert at the lake but I sure am confused. Was it the weather? the draw down? The time of year? I fished near the new boat ramp on the south fork.

Troutski said:I was just wondering where to go tomorrow...thanks.. Are you still in for RedHills lake for Rainbow ? Shoot me a pm and we can talk.
Combat Chuck said:First off, it was a skunk. There, its off my chest. The work on foster dam was finished mid week so I want to see how the lake looked. Stopped off at the new ramp off the hwy and found the water had come up juuussst enough for my pontoon. I had "heard" that GP was fishing good so I wanted to look at that and see if I could launch at sunnyside. The water on the other side of the lake and the main lake was very murky so I continued to GP. It was also murky so I flipped it back around for the south santiam fork. This was some the only clear water. Got to try out my new christmas present, a fish finder, and found very little signs of life. Had my sensitivity turned up at about 3/4 and it was rare to mark a fish. Not sure where they all went? Washed down the santiam? The sunny day sure made it nicer
