    I was thinking about running some trot lines at Rend over the weekend. Maybe around the primitive campground. Any advise on bait and location. Never tried it. Thanks!

    welcome the boc. Wish I could help ya, but I am planning my first trip to Rend in a coupla weeks for the gathering. I've never been there except during duck season. There are a lot of guys on here that fish Rend and they are not stingy with their info. Hopefully someone will help you out soon. Good luck to you!!

    you can probably find some stumps around the primitive camp. if you head north from there you can definitly find some.

    my friends use to set them on the east side of 37. There are stumps there and they have pulled some nice flatheads from there

    well i guess thats out of the question then...lol. I know between Ina and Bonnie there is a creek you drive over and you can get a flat bottom back up in there they have set some in there with succes. I have caught alot of cannels out of that creek. I cant think it what its called though. Its just north of Adams road
