Fished the charles river from Rt 30 towards watertown for a few hours saturday afternoon. managed a few very small larmouth on 5 inch rapella (the fish were no more than 2 inches bigger than the lure). other than that, it was pretty slow. are there bigger fish in this part of the river? i have never caught much over 12".

Yes. Try around the bridges right now. Look for current edges too. current=structure.

Should be some really big bass there soon. Right behind the herring. Really funny looking largemouths....

do the herring come above the falls?

On California St, there's a herring run at the dam, below that in the next few weeks you'll start to see some striper chase the herring up to the dam.
