Getting my boat out of the shop next week and went looking for some place to run it.
Dexter is almost full with docks in place
Fall Creek cant even see the water from the road
Lookout almost Empty
Cottage grove you can launch but almost in the mud
Hills creek didn't go that far but water level graph says its almost as bad as fall creek
Guys are launching at Green Peter
Ben Irving ramp is good and water level rising
Will fish dexter soon.
Fishing off the bank at hills creek might be good just a long hike.

I agree with 4labs bank angling at Hills Creek can be amazing. There are quite a few places to wet a line, I would drive all the way to the back where the Middle Fork enters the res. Find a spot that is not in moving water and do bring something to sit on, the mud is horrible this time of the year.
I toss spoons and spinners to rising fish and when the sun rises over the hills start bottom or bobber angling for great results. I use a nightcrawler with a mini mellow about 16" off the bottom. I see others using power-bait and cheese. Hope you have a banner day on the water...
