Hit jerry creek reservoir #1 today to try for the first bass of the season. We started fishing at approximately 1:30 PM. My dad and I fished until approximately 8 PM. My dad ended up with 16 largemouth and I ended up with 13. We had many more get away. The average fish was 12-16", with the biggest being 18", the smallest being a 9". Most of the fish were caught on 4" red and black senkos, rigged either texas style or wacky. The bass were very far out, and wanted an extremely slow retrieve near the bottom with slow twitches and pauses. The best areas were areas that had rocks near the bottom, preferably points. The fish were not in coves at all until sunset. I spotted 2 bluegill that were alive today, one I estimated at 13", and the other I estimated at just over 9". Both ran when I came upon them. I also saw a few dead big bluegill along the bank. The bass came shallow as the sun set, and good action with senkos fished a little bit faster, parallel to the bank about 20 ft. out. Best area was the east shore, although the point I dub transistion point on the west end spit out 5 largemouth. Only 1 largemouth was caught in the dam area, and 0 were caught around the north shore. Hope this helps anyone going there, I definitely suggest it to any of you west slopers.
