If you are using a spinning rod, if you want to catch some large trout take a couple of Rapala countdowns that are black and gold, the rapala size
most preferred on the stretches below buford dam all the way to Mcginnis Ferry is the second smallest size that Rapala makes. I have been fishing these stretches
from the dam to Mcginnis ofr about 10 years and the rapala has produced every time. Even some big browns. Before bowman's Island, in the deep underwater snags area,
a lot of people have caught quite a few trout on little cleos, and small red devil spoons. If you got any questions about the float let me know, I have floated all the way
to 120 so many times I have all of the water memorized. good luck
