first cove to the left at the very entrance to the SJ has Largemouth lurking in the shallows by the sticks, great for early morning and evening. ALL the big boulders held smallies at around 25 feet. fished from the mouth to just past nasja canyon. Started with 4" chartruese double tail yamamoto grub then switched to cinnamon with purple specks, that was the ticket. Water temp was around 68 degrees. It didn't matter if we were in the shade or full sun. They weren't big fish although there were a few. two of us caught and released about 70 fish in about 4 hours with several doubles. It was a blast.
