Default Hoffman Dam

I bought a new camera so I figured what better place to try it out than Hoffman Dam... The water was very low and remarkably clear for the DPR...Saw schools of small gills but they didn't really show up on the picture... Got some good shots of the bottom contours for when the water goes back up... Nobody there but me today,,, Southwest side of bridge behind PJ Klems restaurant...

I like to fish down by where the creek enters. Good rapids, the creek drops about 3 feet rock bottom and very clear. Compared to 5 years ago its a totally different river.

I like sitting in the boat launch... I use a 9 foot rod with 6lb test and make it to the other shore with a small bottom bouncer and 2" twister tail on a plain hook... Doesn't catch much, but impress' the heck out of people who watch,,,
