Upper or lower PDT river

Recommended Posts

Most of the people that I know that chase the whites in the spring go up the river. Don't really know about the walleye up the river I usually catch several this time of the year while bass fishing the lake. I know they catch several walleye and crappie below the dam when they are running enough water for the walleye to get up there.

I appreciate the help. Parents just bought a place on the lake so I think I may try both options this weekend since I've got the time.

Haven't heard if they are catching any walleye below the dam or not. I haven't noticed a lot of cars parked down there, but with the Corp running water like they are right now there may be a few to be had. With the lake coming up like it is be careful going up in the river there will probably be a lot of trash coming down.

River below dm at times can b very good for walleye or crappie, if water has been running good for a while.  Above the lake is usually good early in spring and in fall for whites and crappie and bass.  Walleye??  If I ever figure them out, well I probably won't tell anyone! And yes the upper ends will be muddy, cold and trashy.

Thanks again for the advice. With all the recent rain I probably won't give it a shot til later this weekend. Do you know approximately how far you can run a boat up river from the access below PP? I've got a kayak as well but would obviously prefer to run the bass boat up there.

IF you know the channel and are careful and a little brave you can run up well past cave hole.  There are some "flats" then a good hole and a bend, usually you can't get past that at "normal" flow.  Riding with someone who knows the area is a bit unnerving.  I am a coward I don't run it, idling is good.  BTW when the sun goes down up there it gets DARK as there is nothing to use for reference.  Also the bridge at PP is closed until May looks like.

Is there anything that would allow me to know where the cave hole is other than searching for it with the depth finder? I've seen references to it on here but haven't ever looked for it. With the bridge closing can you still get to the access from the east?
