    fishing the elkhorn on friday

    going to hit some of the deeper slow moving water. any idea what they are liking this time of year? looking to catch just about anything (bass/panfish/gar). I typically stick to the moving/small rapids area, never really had much luck above dams in the slow moving areas

    If I had to use only three lures, they would be a tube jig, downsized jig/trailer, and a suspending jerkbait.

    decently. Most fish (all largemouth) were in the 10-12in size. All fish were caught on tubes and all were caught before 10am. Put in at Cardome in Georgetown around 7:30am and went up creek. My buddy pulled a nice 2.5-3lber right off the bat. Threw a little of everything (cranks, spinners, worms) and like I said the only thing that worked was the tubes. Couldn't get anything to bite after 10am though, called it a day around noon.

    If you fished the deeper slow water like you said in your first post, that could explain it. I don't know that stretch well, but most deep slow holes I know aren't really good smallmouth spawning areas and that's what they're into right now.

    Fished a shallow stretch of the elkhorn yesterday, smb males were bedding in slack water adjacent to main current, 2-3ft deep, on stone+sand bottom. Had some luck with floating minnow. No big fish, but fun to see what you're casting at, and good topwater bite
