West branch flooding station pond

Scouting the river and ended up at a connected pond. Looks like it only connects when the river is flooded. Read something on a sign that what it is intended for. Packed with hungry large mouth. Lost count how many i got on swimbaits and senkos. Got over a dozen with Majority being 12"-14". Biggest just shy of 2 lbs. A unhappy regular said he has caught 5 to 6 pounders in there but never a smallmouth. All released to be caught again.

My guess is that place will produce open water action until ice up. A gem for sure.
