    Jon boat any good in southern Oregon?

    I had a Jon boat about 15 years ago for a couple of years. The flat bottom made it relatively stable when moving around within it but it got blown around a lot in the wind. I only took it on flat water (lower Willamette, Tualatin and Hagg Lake). Not much freeboard. I definitely wouldn't take it...

    That sucks. I'm glad you had a good time on the water before coming back to your truck.

    6/17/2020 Willamette River report

    I agree. The bites were very subtle, but at least the algae/moss isn't as bad as it was earlier.

    6/17/2020 Willamette River report

    I was able to get out on the Willamette for an hour and a half this morning for a little bass fishing. Launched at Willamette Park - Portland around 9:00. Fished from Sellwood to Lake O. No luck with a paddle tail swim bait or a senko. Caught three between 1-1.5 lb on a Ned rigged TRD tube. Not...

    My first bass out of Bond Butte! 6-14-20

    That's how I usually rig them also with a light wire hook. I'm hoping to get out on the Willamette on Wednesday and I'm going a Texas rigged Senko with a nail weight in the opposite end. I saw an Ike YouTube about this referring to it as the Tiny Child Rig.

    Fly fishing lessons

    I took a day long class through a fly shop/guide that was "on-water" that went through entomology, fly selection, casting, mending, etc. I found out that casting is only a part of fly fishing. I'm thinking of going back for a refresher. If you can afford it, I'd really recommend taking lessons...

    Noti Creek Reservoir reports

    That is a realistic looking and sized swimbait. I don't see catching many dinks with that. Thanks for the report.

    Hagg Lake 31 May 2020

    Thanks for the report @bass. Are the restrooms open or are there portable restrooms? How busy was the ramp and how full was the boat trailer parking (if you noticed)? I'm planning on trying the Willamette between Portland and LO on Thursday morning. I'll let you know what I find.

    Another trip out of 10th street launch, 24 May 2020

    I got a similar ticket parking in Cannon Beach in January for parking in an RV spot. There wasn't a single RV in the lot and not a single car parking spot to be found.

    Finally back out on the Willamette

    I got a late start yesterday, around 10:30. My main purpose was to see if the work I did on my motor took care of the issues I had been having which it did. Fished rocky points from Willamette Park to LO for about an hour. No bites. Threw soft plastics and crankbaits. Water temp was 58-60. Water...

    Cold day at Crane Prairie

    Glad you had some luck and I think you were smart to get out of there before the weekend crowd arrived.

    Just going for bass. I’ll only have 2-3 hours so I have to make it count.
