    My understanding is that the stripes are all up in the creeks this time of the year but I have seen them in deep water in the river channels, so who knows.

    Last fall (Oct), I watched a pair of guys wear out some stripes below Wheeler Dam. They were on the rocks right at the dam and were throwing straight at the discharge boils. White 6" Zoom flukes I think they were using. Top water plugs are great when they first running water,spring and fall.
