Fished Hells Canyon (Grande Ronde to Kirby Creek) for two days a couple of weeks ago. Caught a handfull of decent natives but only one keeper. Nailed the shit out of catfish though.:haha:
The counts are down but we're gonna hit up the John Day on friday anyway.
r u catching steelies off the carbon?levi....i see scotty fishing down there ..or his truck parked at the skate park.
We're gonna be fishin' out of a boat.
I'm probably the wrong person to ask about the JD. I've only been on it a few times. Never more than a three or four miles up which was no problem in a prop boat. Once you get past the campground up there (can't remember the name) you've got to watch out for shallow spots but you can still get about another mile up with a prop. I don't know how far but the jet boat guys are getting a ways up in there.
We usually don't fish more that far from the mouth. I'll post up some pics when we get back.
You guys just troll the banks? What do you guys use for lures?
Was he below the dam? If so do they launch there or run up from one of the landings down river?
Its the first dam going up the snake without a fish ladder (end of the line).
