The automatic gate at Morgan Falls doesn't roll
until 6:53. When you put in at the ramp,
paddle across the river to the slack water and try
to get your canoe into the discharge pool behind the
dam. This is the best place in this whole section to
fish. I suggest you bring an anchor.
There is a deep hole behind the far left discharge
which holds fish all the time. However, be prepared to
catch Bass, Trout, Jack, Perch,and Crappie. This is
definitly a multi-species area.
The baits I have the most luck with is a small
deep diving silver Shad Rap and the venerable #7 RT
As you move down river, you will see a floating dock
on the left side. Spend some time fishing this hole. It's
great for both crappie and trout.
The next major feature is the rock cliffs, but
I've never caught much there or in the grass in the
middle of the river. I usually bypass this area and
go straight to the log jams about a mile down river on
A #7 RT thrown into the logs and twitched out will
take both Brown Trout and Bass. Take your time. I usually
throw into each log jam at least 10 times, and catch as
many fish on the first cast as I do on the 10th cast
There is a creek that enters the river on the left
just before Johnson Ferry. This spot always holds fish.
Be sure to throw at each end of that culvert that's laying
in the river. There's always a fish inside of it.
On Saturday, it is probably best to pull out at Johnson
Ferry, because the rafters and bleeding heart conservationists
will make you miserable.
