Find one, you probably found a hundred. Well, I never caught that many in a day. 20-30 wasn't all that unusual; if you found them.
I usually go up the Yuba River on my friend's jetboat. A lot of times I use my 6 weight Spey rod with a ghost tip casting Scandi style. Some of the holes that we are fishing are no more than three feet deep.
