If there are bass in the same general area there is possibility. It would help alot if you mentioned where this stream is. Looks like there could be smallies in it? The only way to find out is FISHING the place! ;)

Its in kansas and the stream is, not very structured and kinda merky water. My friend through a net in just to see whats in there and he caught some shad so we know there is bait fish, what lures do you throw into a stream, and do you throw against or with the flow

T-rig a Sweet Beaver weightless and cast upstream and let it drift in the current.

Fishing in streams is different.  Cover is still important, but the current is the key.  You want to look for pools where the water isn't moving or is moving slower than the main current.  A lot of times that'll be at a bend in the stream or right up against the bank.  Anywhere that's deeper, the water will move slower.  Bass will be in the slow water where they don't have to fight the current constantly.  They will usually be positioned facing upstream waiting for prey to come downstream with the flow.  Sometimes you'll do well by casting into the moving water so your bait gets carried into the slack water.  Other times, you can cast right into the slack water.  A good all around choice for streams is a small tube rigged on a slider head or t-rigged with a light pegged bullet weight.  

Good luck!

Try the transition zones........ fast current to slack, shallow to deep, weeds to gravel. Anywhere you see an edge is worth a try. You will soon figure out if there are any bass in that baby :)
