I fish them frequently. If you can get down 4-6 feet with a bright (pink, chartrese) you can do fine. The most important part is choosing the proper location to fish. Find the eddies and you will find fish regardless of water depth. The shallow bays like Gold Creek can be good if the fish are in the bitting mood.
