Indeed, Riffe fishing in general has been great. I keep makin the trip out there myself. Fishing the small channels where the old towns once were. Now that the waters down they're easy to find.

There's a little pond across from the SW end of Riffe - Swafford Pond. Electric only. It has some huge largemouth in it.

We've done all catch-and-release there for years. The eagles don't practice it though. They're very active in there. I've caught several mount-worthy fish in there.

Heading down this weekend, never fished it late August..  I have it dialed in for June/July but never fished it this late.  Anyone been out recently for the silvers/kings?  How is it fishing?  Planning on fishing it the way I always do but I know the water is down a bit.  Anyone change it up when the let the lake down?

The east wind was pretty bad last week. Be prepared for it. I know the fishing crowd was way down.

thanks...  I checked it today, looks to be fairly mild..  hopefully.  I think it slows down more because guys are chasing salmon in the rivers and salt.  Usually that is what I'm doing, but it's been slow go in the river this year unless its pinks.  Typically have a decent card going for kings by now and its been a big goose egg.  figured I'd take them out there for more action and the freezer is almost empty from the June/July trips.
