Fished at "The Steps" yesterday for 3 or 4 hours. The river looks amazing, lots of clear flowing water, just not many fish biting. I ended catching a few undersize crappie and a small black bass, but no white bass. Still a bit early I guess, but thought I'd give it a try. Should be a good run this year if the water level holds.

Thanks for the report. I'll have to come up and fish with you when they get going good.

Jamie, I think you could do really well there with your fly rod.

Gonna be hard to beat Nails and Yegua this year. Both are just about the best I've ever fished.

That's true, but tough to beat Louie Mueller's BBQ in Taylor for a great post fishing trip meal.

What's up Jared? Been reading you and Hook Line and Sinkers fish porn...you guys got me all wound up! Selling the kayak tomorrow...need the $ for a surgery my baby girl needs, so I will be beating the banks for the foreseeable future. We should try to get some guys together for a Yegua beatdown this year!
I just cant get myself to invest the time into Granger anymore. Just too many people and the size just isnt like Yegua. It was great in the yak, but from the bank I get frustrated out there. Who knows, maybe Reimer's will be back to normal this year too! Take care brotha!

That storm blew in wet and violent putting just enough water in the Somerville creeks to muddy them up. That did a number on the fish and they got a bad case of lock-jaw. I am reel confident they are still there but judging from how few fish J-Moe and I caught Monday you wouldn't know it! As I drove up to Nails Creek Park I crossed over Jerdelle, McCain and Cedar creeks which looked nice in the morning but by 2 PM they were all flowing and muddy. It took a few hours for the water to reach the lake. There is a slight chance that little flush of fresh muddy water will bring up a wave of whitebass from the lake but I wouldn't plan on it.

Just wondering if the whites have made it up there yet? I bet the water is spectacular this year.

Is the primitive boat launch open yet? Can kayakers get their yaks down there?

Jamie would have a blast at the steps with is fly rod. There will also be several others there to compete with though. A lot of fly fisherman at this place.

There may be more and bigger fish coming out of Somerville, but I like this river bank better. You can stand on flat ground while you fish, your toes are not trying to poke through your shoes the entire time. But I do both, so it doesn't matter.

Yes, I absolutely would, not matter if white bass are smaller than the ones I catch at Somerville. The setting would be what made it special. Let me know when you head that way.

Mostly unders were caught. Caught 6 keepers on a small white jig
