We made a plan to target some of the larger Rainbows that this body of water is known for. Our target was elusive, yet we stayed away from the easy fishing, smaller fish close by the net pens. We really had to work for our fish. We fished for 8 hours over 2 days and only hooked 8 fish. However our average fish weighed over 4 lbs. We kept only one that wouldn't have survived, so they are still there for you to catch and release again. Finding deeper pools of water with obstructions underneath, was key to hooking the larger fish. Due to active water flow and underwater hydraulics with dam releases, this water requires constant boatsman skills and demands active monitoring on the sonar. However the rewards are a once in a lifetime experience.
