I fished from Blackbrush last weekend 3/4 of the way up the devils river to Rough canyon in a 13 foot boat with a 5hp motor in 15mph winds. Don't be to afraid of the wind, but at the same time don't be stupid, there are protected pockets all along the lake.
Most of our fish came out of 6-15 feet of water. Caught em on topwater when the wing was low and primarily texas rigs when the wind was blowing. Lots of little fish but I did catch one between 6 and 7. Have fun, it's an awesome lake
