Last nite was awesome--no smallmouth at all but the big stripe were on!!!!! In two hours we had 7 over 5lbs and 15 more between 1 and 3 lbs, till we ran out of minnows. Caught a couple more on nitecrawlers, but no cat (didnt expect many since we stayed above the towers in the current). Been a while since i've nailed the stripe like that!.

As for smallies--Mark's idea of using creek minnows is probably the best way to go now--still no evidence of yellowtails and the darn shiners i am gettin at the shop are much smaller than i like. Those big creek chubs, hogsuckers, or even logperch darters (may not be totally legal to use darters) should be the ticket for big smallies.
