Re: john day river
Three weeks ago I drifted from Service Creek to Twickenham in a 16 foot cataraft. We absolutely slayed the bass. At this point I would not advise taking a driftboat down, but if you have an inflatable, GO FOR IT! This time of year the bass really get concentrated in the deeper pools. If you can get your lure down to the bottom of some of those holes without catching small ones, you can pick up some pretty big fish.
A lot of people don't know this but there are also some hefty channel cats all the way up to service creek too.
A people that values its privileges above its principles will soon lose both.
