Thinking about hitting up the Delaneys next Monday to hopefully chase some big boys. Never been up that way, and I know it's artificials only, but would anyone be willing to share some insight into where I might start. CPR only and I know the browns are in full spawn right now, so I'll take extra care of those. Slot limits will be adhered to, I just want to try and hook something other than a stocker bow. Also will be trying Chambers on Tuesday for some macks. Thanks for the info upfront. TW

Thanks for the tips. I have a wide variety of dynamics in all shapes and sizes. Figure I'll throw the entire tackle box at em if it comes to that. Tube jigs work much? Haven't used them a lot, but I'm trying to become a more varied angler.

So we hit up N on Monday. Got to the lake about 8am, cool, but not cold. Clear skies and very little wind. Started out throwing firecraw jerk bait, and got one follow, but no bites. Switched to a Rogue, and got a 21" cutbow to the bank. Pretty fish, but didn't want to try and photo due to being the only person in the area and didn't want to keep it out of the water for too long. Buddy got one 16" brown, again no pic due to seperation in space. No other anglers up there. Beautiful area and a bald eagle actually visited while we were getting ready to leave. Hit up Chambers on the way home, but couldn't coax anything into biting. Windy in the pm and the long drive home forced us to leave about 3pm. Saw 3 deer on the way down the canyon. All in all, a great fall day to be in the mountains.
