    has anybody been havin luck on the river? might be going on a 3 day trip starting at picacho park then going down to martinez then imperial dam. does that sound like a good trip or should i change it up? is bait easy to catch or bring some?

    bait seems easy to catch. spawn is going on right now for the gills and redears. sounds like a fun time ralph.
    i won't pull my boat up to picacho though. darn road is nothing but solid ruts.

    I agree. I wouldn't drive that road to Picacho for anything. I would put in somewhere around martinez lake and go from there. Gills are good for flats but channels are hitting now too. Took a buddy out on Tues and he got a couple nice eaters, a 4 and a 3 pounder. Tight lines.

    wherever you put in i wish you the best. i went out last night for awhile with the two grandsons. had a few good runs, but seemed like all we caught was salad on the lines. lots of craps floating in the water right now.
    only place i know about picacho to launch is walters camp. lots of sand bars to would make interesting trip. but bet the fish would be biting good.
