I was wondering the same thing. I have no interest in the "snagging alley". I have never been to riverside but it looks like it would offer plenty of room for a lot of guys to fish. I recall hearing about fish being caught this spring in the bend above the park. Is that still a productive hole given the current conditions?

only when fish are moving. The first day we get some serious rain it will produce a little, but you need to be there about 1 hour after it starts raining to catch the main push of them blasting through.
Once they have enough water to move, they do it FAST..

Don't wait for rain! Fish are pushing through right now. The river is loaded. The best bite has been early AM.
Riverside has good access upstream of the parking lot.
Go up to Barton, tons of room.

you're right, the river has had fish for about a month now... the best bite is ALWAYS early am for coho...

If you want to have a shot at a 20+ fish day, hit it hard on that first good day of rain.

They're still having lights out days for coho at B-10. It's far from tailing out... This is going to close at the end of OCT and fish will still be coming.

yep, you cycle through and pick your favorites. once you hit your limit on the head with rocks you go home wishing you hadnt killed that last fish so you could keep going. option b is your arm starts hurting so you get outta there.

If you don't want to fish the bowling alley hole just go up to Cross Park.
I went there yesterday after work and plenty of fish were moving through, five or ten at a time. Plenty of space.

The fish are in there. I think you just have to put in your time. I've fished four days this week and caught two fish. I think it's like the the lottery, you can't win if you don't play. The odds are probably better with fishing though.

Small black corkie with black or red yarn has been working for me. Size #3 and#4 spinners. Red body...Red blade , Black body..black blade, Red body...pink blade , Red body..brass blade , Lime green body...brass blade. The water is ultra clear, and the fish moving through the lower river are easily spooked. Be aware of where you are standing, and what you are doing. If you can see the fish, they can see you. Find yourself a slick tailout and watch it for twenty minutes or so. If you are looking down at it from upstream you will see a wave appear and push it's way upstream. This will be a pod of fish moving through.
I make my own spinners, so you you might not find those color combinations. Experiment with what you can find.
