Anyone ever fish this area? We are doing a float trip there Saturday and I don't have a clue on how to approach it

Gulp Minnows nose hooked with circle hooks. Pitch close to fallen trees, behind rocks and deep holes. Also the Rapala tiny poppers are amazing on the Buffalo as well. These are the only 2 baits I take when I go, make sure to take a lot though. Catching a ton of smallmouth will deplete your baits rather fast. This will be the 1st fall I haven't gone in years and I miss it so bad. Oh and hang on tight!!

Oh and make sure to fish below the rapids and the feeder streams

Slider worm would work great in the right spots, I bet.

Did a week there last year. I caught tons of smallmouth on a small green pumpkin tube rigged with a 1/8oz jig head inside the tube and the line tie pushed through near the top of the tube if that makes sense. I fished it behind the rapids in and around submerged boulders and just wore them out. Also I caught bigger fish in the slower pools on the yellow magic! For max fun with the size fish that I saw I would fish a med light action spinning rod with max 8lb. test fluorocarbon. Maybe a light bait caster with 10lb. test for top waters or a spinner bait. Man that place is really beautiful and a LOT of fun to float and fish!
