Default LaPage park

Went there Thursday boat ramp was open but didn't take the boat. Planned on fishing off the ramp dock for cat's but ended up catching a bunch of bass around 10" and a bunch of bluegill's. Oh lost one mud cat. Then Friday went to Clarno looking for bass ended up with five and a few I threw back. My son just fished for cats. He has caught them down there but I've never caught one down there!Hopefully the rain will quit and can do Prineville Res for crappie's. I hate sitting in the boat in the rain!

The information I would like is the catfish bite in the lower John Day. It is that time of year. The catfish tournament is always the end of May so fish should be congregating at the falls soon. Big fish eating lots of everything is always fun. I suspect the water is high but should shape up next week.

I'll be launching there next week.

Has anyone ever fished that big reef about 7 miles upriver from the JD mouth for smallmouth?...

Yeah a couple years back me and a buddy made the trip from Portland to lepage park one night to go after all the supposed channel cats that were supposed to be there by the mouth... Yeah no. It was the perfect time of year (mid June) and we used a wide variety of baits, nightcrawlers, cured eggs and chicken liver. Not one channel cat. We fished off the dock from about 10:30 pm to 1 or 2 am and just caught a hoard of tiny 6-8" yellowbelly bullheads. Big fat bust. I have always heard that the narrows upstream are where the most channel cats are.

yeah, too late and wrong spot on river. Massive move of cats upstream to falls from mid May to early June in lower JD. you can catch them in many spots as they move upI am assuming to spawn. Last year the river was high during best time and fishing was off. Watch water levels drop now that rain is gone for awhile. This is setting up for a great season, albeit A short one for me. All techniques work when bite is on. Big, healthy channel cats. Not my favorite eating fish but lots of action if your timing is right. Give it another chance this year.

Check the flow graph for the JD. The night of the 21st there must have been a flash flood or something. Water jumped to 19000cfs. Is coming down now.

Yes, I have fished it for years. Lots of gill nets in the area, but can be productive. I like to drift through, then target the depth/structure I caught them at on the drift. Not a bad run up from LePage ramp. PM me if you have questions
