I was wondering if anyone has fished around Beacon Rock. I was hoping to steal my buddies boat for some shad and oversized this weekend. Is the water still way hi? How much weight are you using for oversized. Wondering if I need to break out the downrigger ball to fish. Thanks for any info.

there should still be plenty of shad at the shad rack. Upriver on the wash side above the fishery.
You can also probably stay just outside of the main channel current and do just fine on the oversize. you'll still need alot of wieght though, as much as 32oz. depending on the spot.
The back eddie across from the fishery is fairly calm and I've done well there in years past. Just watch the main current, it can be dangerous anchoring in.
good luck!
