    Wondering if any of you local guys target Flats? I fish alot around CJ Strike and a little at Brownlee. Now I know a few are taken in Brownlee but have never seen one further north. Seems if they are in Brownlee they would also be further up the Snake any experience out there?

    I don't target flats but I know they go as far up as steck park and farewell bend. The wife caught a 12 pounder off the bank one summer day when the water was running really low. So I know the go that far up. One would think they would travel as far up as swan falls damn but you never know. I haven't heard of them that far though. Hope this helps.

    my thoughts where the same but they are a pretty hard fish to target in idaho because of our fishing laws
