Small mouth bass in desolation canyon

Found this report today on small mouth bass and other non-natives in Desolation Canyon.

Has anyone targeted small mouth and been successful? Was just planning on bringing cat fishing tackle but now im rethinking a little bit.

Anyone? Anyone?

That does'nt surprise me. I have caught them on the upper yampa above cross mt. Get some bass jigs, the brighter the better. Bring your catfish rig though, there are some monsters in there also.

Floated deso last year at low water and the catfish were unreal... eating on top with abandon in nearly any smooth eddy. Occasional carp in the mix too. I really wished I had a 3 wt and a box of dry flies.
None of the cats on top were very big, but would've been fun for a while for sure.
