Trout Fishing in Oregon

Top places for trout fishing in Oregon, the best trout fishing techniques, the latest trout fishing reports.
Anyone else taken a look at the ODFW trout stocking schedule 2020 (specifically the Willamette Zone)? I have a few observations. Quite a number of stocking sites have no listings and I am hoping that the schedule is only partially complete. Perhaps the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers schedule...

I'm heading over to the Siletz tomorrow, to look for some sea run cutthroat from the bank. I was just curious, though.. how far upstream does one find them? Any other advice is welcome, but that's my main question. I'd ask Tony, but he's famously tight lipped... lol Thanks in advance, Fattie

I've never had a native trout. For decades, I've fished the McKenzie and I've faithfully released all natives. I hear they are better in taste and texture, so I'd like to add them to my menu, at least once. I'll start tearing through the synopsis later, to find a spot that will allow me to...

Place a fresh trout on top of frozen vegetables and simmer gently with the lid on until the trout is cooked to satisfaction. I like butter and garlic salt on the vegetables. What do you suggest should go on the trout?

I'm not someone who fishes for trout a lot, but its a lot of fun, especially creeks and rivers. My outfit consists of a G-Loomis TSR-801 2, and Daiwa Procyon 1000, with 4 lb Seaguar Red Label fluorocarbon. As far as I understand, Johnson creek is off limits to fishing, but as a kid I caught...

Any special tips to releasing farm raised rainbow trout? The only room mate who eats them moved out recently. I try and keep them in the water, dehook them quickly, avoid skin to scale contact and no idea if they make it through the night after that. I usually see 8-10 dead ones laying on the...

Growing up in Florida, the best time to fish was right before a storm (pressure change) or right after. I've caught all of my biggest largemouth right after a rain with a topwater frog. Do trout react the same? I would assume the changing barometric pressure fires them up, but do they know to...

I decided to go out and do some ice fishing this morning for the first time out at Little Hyatt Lake. I've heard that native Redband trout are present there and that's what I was hoping to catch. Started off the day of fishing with a bite but unfortunately due to my sloppy and rushed knot tying...

Had a training down toward the coast and some co-worker buddies and I wanted to fish on our way back. My friend Don at the River city Fly shop showed me the Reverse Spider pattern so I gave it a try. After about 20 minutes of getting the retrieve down, I watched as a fat Cutthroat smashed the...
