Fishing reports are good in the China Bend area. The lake level is low so there are only 2 boat ramps open at this time. The Kettle Falls Marina (see map below) and a boat launch on the north end of Northport. The Northport launch is closer to the good fishing near China Bend. Greg K and Sam G are planning to launch at Northport and travel 4 to 6 miles downstream to some proven fishing grounds.
