    Scotty, assuming you're on the left bank (nearest us on the photo), I'd forget about the flying C and horse a fly out about 8ft - 10ft beyond the red line - where I'd expect the fish to be lying down this stretch, on a lengthy line at about 45 - 50 degs to the river. I'd be tempted with a size 8 or more likely a size 10 cascade double in this water.

    Don't forget about the inside of the curve-right bank, an often neglected part of a run.

    Looks pretty fishy to me, then again any excuse cast and fish !

    Is it not just off the right bank that you can fish???

    It's a good excercise you are trying. On the picture in question, I'd be 300 yards upstream of there concentrating on the Chinese Pool above the Bridge instead. The water you are looking at is shallow on the left and right bank in most flows and I'd be surprised if it held fish very often. It is towards the end of a rapid that flows from the Chinese Pool above. It might be a spot where traveling fish would pause either side of the current, but my understanding of Kenmore is the fish (in the days when they had any) tend to move straight from the Battery to the Chinese. Once the water gets down even the Trout tend to be thin on the ground in there - I've not caught them often enough to know

    Keep posting the photos

    Never had a fish from anywhere above farleyer but some parts of the river are stunning up there.Would loved to have fished these beats when they had healthy runs up this part.
