If you are near Elkton, head south on Elkton-Southerlin Highway. At the first bridge that crosses the river look left (east) and you should see the river flowing through a very long stone slot that is vertical on both sides. Find a way out there and virtical jig baits off the side. Start shallow, jig, drop it a little deeper, jig.. etc. There are some huge fish there, I've caught them! Not sure if it's private or not at that exact spot, you should find out.
