Finally been getting some rain upstream of my location, and there's water moving in my river.  Keystone Dam has been generating A LOT lately, so this morning, I went up there to give it a go.  Landed one, had a few bites with no hookups, and hooked and lost "something" when it got tangled up in the rocks on bottom.

Welcome to the group Dusty!

Thanks John.  I still consider myself to be "learning".  You can never learn enough!

It was kind of interesting, as one of my friends showed up.  He's a fishing guide for Stripers and Hybrid Striped Bass.  He and his wife are camping at a State Park a few miles away.  His boat is in the shop right now, so he's having to relearn the whole "bank-fishing" thing.  I ended up showing him where the fish are, how to catch them, and even let him borrow some gear, as he didn't have his "stash" with him.  I also helped fill his stringer.

Great report Allen .Would like to fish for cats on water like you have access to and learn the craft!
