I was down in the Bend area this past week and happened upon one of the local lakes(Sparks). The water was down and the fish were stacked up in the channel. In the course of 2 hours I hooked 15 fish, all cutthroats and all between 18" and 20". Some were big hook nosed males. A black woollybugger seemed to be the food of choice. I went back a couple of days later and they were still there although the weekend crowd was starting to show up. People were every where, but the lake being so shallow between the launch and the channel, 16" or so, it did help to keep some of them out.
