All fish 10-11 inches, no brutes. Flyrods still producing.
That's great! I had a tuff time last week there but took two kids with me more interested in running around in the boat. Brush all out of water in ochoco and dock out of the water, pain launching and getting picked up again. One thing I did learn there was to fish the rock's better. With no brush, I had no choice. Only got 16 crappie in two trips, only three the second day. First day spent figuring out the lake but got 9 crappie and 9 ass Crappie ran from 10 inch' the biggest at 12 1/4". Son want's to go to Ochoco but I'm wanting back on Prineville Res. Need to figure out the rocks! Taking him over maybe Monday or Tuesday. He want's Ochoco fr the catsfish. Didn't try much for them there.
My last trip to Prineville Res was with the kids last week. Boat ramp was fine but all the brush was out f the water. I like to put in at jasper point and go back to the brush but all the brush was out of the water. Planning on at least once a week this summer/fall.
