I did. This year I was late for the pre spawn and only caught smaller fish. I think the big females were recuperating.
Odfw has been shocking Davis for at least three years. If done correctly it should have a very low mortality rate so bass being "killed off" really isn't an issue.
The shocking is done so they can capture and transport largemouth to other Oregon lakes. People have been talking about the need for warmwater stocking programs and may not realize Davis largemouth have been stocked in many lakes.
