Made the trip last week to Amistad. Caught my first Texas smallmouth ever. Then ended up catching more smallmouths than largemouths. Go figure! My son and I probably had 20-30 fish per day. Mainly fished in and around Rough Canyon Marina.

Caught the majority of them on chatterbaits, spinnerbaits, and a squarebill. 1-20 foot depth. Didn't see any grass though. Best spot for us was the main point off the river just to the south of the marina.

theres a kiosk machine at Diablo East by the restrooms at the top of the hill. We only fish 2 or 3 days so I buy a $10 permit and put the receipt in my wallet in case I get checked. I assume that is still running!
