Has anyone fished Spratt Platte recently? I was going to go to Evergreen Lake yesterday but couldn't get my butt out of bed so I went to the gravel ponds off of 88th and colorado. I mainly wanted to try out my new lures and that's all I did. The water level was low on the southern pond and I could see the male bass chillin by the vegetation in the shallows. No takers. tried every type of lure I had including carolina rigged worms and berkeley gulp minnows. I did see one of the biggest Colorado bass I have ever seen in my life though. She must have weighed around 7lbs and was in the mid twenties inch wise. Not interested in anything either. Nice day to be out though.

kokaneeking,

I seen all the bass on the south pond on the east shore closest to the river. The big momma was swimming around by all the big rocks in the water.

Spratt Platte is flies & lures only. Bass must be 18 inches before you can keep them. This was a great fishery last year that was quickly damaged by those who cared nothing for rules. If you see people abusing the rules let em' have it!

I caught most of my bass there using a .5 oz jig head with a chad imitation. Crawfish imitation works well too like a brownish tube jig. Enjoy fishing there quickly because it will not take long for the moss to take over the shorelines.
