    Water Clarity: Muddy (0-2 foot visibility)

    Report: My buddy and I fished Anderson on Sunday. I am fairly new at bass fishing but managed to hook 7 and boat 5. All were of average size and caught them on power craws. Always nice to be on the water with a friend although he had a tough day on the water with no fish.

    Water Clarity: Clear (4+ foot visibility)

    Report: Most likely very few bass. The reservoir was drawn down to minimum pool for a full season. They have worked hard to fill it up with trout. They will most likely not make an effort to replant bass. If you are planning on fishing Arrowrock you might as well go above to fish Anderson Ranch or stay lower and fish Lucky Peak. They both have decent smallmouth populations. Arrowrock's water levels fluctuate significantly throughout the summer. It is a good put and take for trout.
    City: Boise

    Tips: No good bass. For trout, trolling and bait seem to be the method of choice for most people that fish the reservoir.

    Water Temp: 64-66

    Water Clarity: Clear (4+ foot visibility)

    Report: Nice weather, not a ton of wake makers, fished with the Paulboro Man, so fun overall but size was very, very hard to get. We got a gaggle of fish throwing rip bait, c-rig, drop shot, crank, t-rig, jig, tube (I think that's it). No particular pattern that we used but just jumped around quite a bit.
    City: San Carlos

    Tips: Keep moving around.
