Anyone from Idaho?

I must have somehow missed this board. Don't quite know how. Maybe it's just that time of day where the brain turns off. Anyways, I fish CJ Strike alot.  We are fishing the BBB OPEN at Lake Lowell this Saturday. The lake is almost full and it's supposed to be warm with little wind.

It's gonna be a jig day. Flippin, Flippin, Flippin & more Flippin.

Gotta love the largies hiding in the trees. :)

Alright so I fished Massacre Rocks on Saturday and had no luck.  I'm pretty new to bass fishing so I blame myself more than anything.  What does it take to catch bass this time of year?  For those who don't know, Massacre Rocks is on the Snake River west of American Falls.  Any tips would be appreciated.  Thanks

There is a lot of water flowing down the river right now.  They may increase the flow more soon.  We might have flows like we did in 1997 when we had flooding here along the river.

East Idaho here. Been wanting to try Massacre Rocks too. Just started smallmouth fishing last year. Been fishing Ririe but I can't catch smallmouth of any significant size there. Went out to Ririe last Friday and got skunked on the smallmouth. I did catch a kokanee and a trout.

I don't know how I missed this thread either. I live in Nampa and fish the hell out of CJ, Brownlee, Lowell, Owyhee, Ben Ross, and usually slay this time of year, however winter just won't let go and the waters I've been hitting are still in the high 40s or low 50s. Rough year so far on the smallies for sure! I'm thinking this weekend should finally be decent. I'm heading to Owyhee or CJ, I'll let you know how it goes.

I was at Lake Walcott Monday and the water temp was 52 degrees.  I did not stay long but caught a 2lb 5oz and a 3lb 8oz.  Thursday I am heading out there again camping till Tuesday.  Hopefully I can get into the bigger ones.

I know this topic is really old, but I thought I would try to bring it back to life, haha.  I live in Western Wyoming, and I married a gal from American Falls Idaho.  Lucky for me, we spend time there a few times per year.  My favorite fish in that area is Smallmouth Bass for sure, but the big trout are fun too.  I have only fished the lake a few times, because I prefer river fishing.  Fishing for Bass from the bank can be tough during the summer months, because the river flow and depth make it hard to wade, and bank access is very limited.  I have wanted to figure out the off season better.  The trout are easy to catch in the off season, but I have never connected with a bass.  I have been told that most of the bass will migrate down to the upper end of Lake Walcott to winter?  I find that hard to believe because there is one major waterfall obstacle on the way from American falls to Walcott or Massacre Rocks.  I would LOVE to hear from a smallmouth angler who knows where to target smallmouth in the cooler months.  I just can't seem to connect with smallies in September, October or April.  Once the water warms they are easy to catch, but I am still pretty limited bank fishing.  I have been thinking about buying a fishing raft so I can drift fish during higher flows.
