    Bass_t, i have been fishing the reiter area since 1975. have had my encounters there over the years. one was my fault. that aside. if i bring my bug rod or drift rod for that matter i go expecting to fish around those types of folks. no worries. i have caught my share of steelhead from that area.
    for bug rod water i like the run just below the cable hole on down almost to proctor ( which is a great hole on the hatchery side, long walk though). and dont forget the water upstream of the ponds all the way to index. try your trout tactics upstream. just use a bigger bug and maybe an indicator if that suits you.
    hint : the farther you get from the ponds upstream the better your chances of picking up a fish on the floater/skating fly.
    just my 2 cents.

    Well, fine. I think I was at least there for the birth of this one.

    interesting. Been on speypages reading about long rods, 16'+. Decided I'd fish a 16'er tonight and think I'll tie on a penis evening and swing her through. Not many fish around so extra flash might help, I sure hope so.

    I may or may not have knowledge of another participant in this thread using a spey rod to pull plugs from a drift boat.

    That's it...this fall I'm going to pull a pink worm behind a black mag wart on my 2 hander. Maybe with a bead trailer....I feel dirty just talking about it.

    Well I've done a few things that I'm not exactly proud of... But that doesn't mean I wouldn't like to try them out again!!!!

    A semi digression...but...Tom McNally wrote about using spinners with a pork rind strip for bass in his book "Fly Fishing".
    PG 307 if you find a copy of the book from 1978.

    If that's wrong, then I don't want to be right.

    The BandWagon emerges. Where the hell have you been! I still think about you casting your two hander trying to ignore the "crying cowboy" music that kid was blasting at the boat launch at 6am. Still cracks me up.

    This is heading in a distasteful direction.
