To answer your question, the first two pictures are from the upper flats. The last two are indeed just downstream of baetis bend.
next time you are there inquire about access to Death Row, especially the lower section. There are some bigger fish in there, caught a couple near the bank in the early '90s.
Good luck, the SJ is a great fishery.
