    Upper Willamette, cloudy and windy day, recipe for success

    That slalom course has been there since early this summer. @portlandrain and I saw it when we went fishing together early in the summer. No one was using it the day we were there but we asked someone what it was. I am surprised that there were folks out there during the week, maybe it is onl...

    Upper Willamette, cloudy and windy day, recipe for success

    No. I didn't quite make it all the way up there. The fishing was so good on the flats, humps and points on the way there I ran out of time :) I can only imagine the fishing is even better around the island.

    Another epic day OFF the Willamette River

    Totally agree. I always try to knock a jump down when I can by keeping the rod low and constantly changing the angle. Unfortunately this was at the end of a long cast and I thought it was a snag when it hit because it just felt like the lure stopped dead cold. With that much line out, I don't...

    Upper Willamette, cloudy and windy day, recipe for success

    I put in a long 11 hour day on the upper Willamette River (Willamette park in West Linn) on Saturday the 10th. It was a beautiful day for fishing with a nice overcast for most of the day, a few sprinkles in the afternoon. A bit less wind would have been nice from a fishability point of view but...

    Another epic day OFF the Willamette River

    A bunch in the 1.5 to 2lb range. I lost a real pig on the jump though.

    2 to 3lb smallmouth are definitely nice fish, even more so in the summer. One thing for sure is that smallmouth do move around a lot in the summer. I have spots that are red hot some days and empty others. I usually follow up with a swim bait or the Ned rig. The smallmouth hit the Ned rig in...

    I had not been out fishing for a couple of weeks so I was stoked to get to fish on a Friday. My plan was to get out early but he 1.5 hour drive back from the beach turned into a 6 hour ordeal (motorhome or something caught on fire) which wiped me out a bit. The alarm went off at 3:30 on Friday...

    What species of trout is this fish?

    Doh! I misread the original post as below the dam. I am a dam moron :)

    What species of trout is this fish?

    I agree. No fish can get past the dam. He caught it below the dam.

    I don't know how to fish Hagg in the summer

    Thanks for that info @Pole Bendahz . That is different from what I would have guessed. I love learning new things. I bet I have spent time fishing too deep in the summer. Do you target the mud lines near shore?

    What species of trout is this fish?

    They swim up the Tualatin to Gales. I believe they used to spawn way up Scoggins before the dam. I can't imagine why the dam would make them stop. Probably even better conditions now with the colder water from the lake. I don't see any red under the throat. Also I thought juvenile cutthroat...

    Bluelake Park, Fairview

    If you fish from a SUP I would call the parks department there and check. No one here can no for sure and the "I was told on the internet" defense has yet to work :)

    Only when they are not renting them. From the website: From October through April, you can use only a private fishing boat with horsepower less than 3.0 and shorter than 14 feet (17 feet for canoes and kayaks) for the purpose of angling only. Private watercraft, such as recreational boats and...
