Its my favorite spot all you need is a split shot and a nite crawler and almost every cast is a catch. Also some bluegill, tiny things but they fight hard.

Hawk said:thar are many smallmouth bass in the south Umpqua..................
thar are striped bass at the mouth of the Umpqua.........................
mikeredding said:Yes I know that but was referring to this "little Cove" that mruglystick was talking about. I thought he may be saying that there are some Largemouth in there. After all he said there are Bluegill.

Sometimes i see snapping turtles & others on the creeks when i'm looking fer crawdads. Two years ago a snapper lived in my basspond all summer. They eat quite a few fish. Quite a few bull frogs live by the pond also .........................
And the non-native bull frogs are doing the same.Snapping turtle are a non native species in Oregon. I recommend that you notify ODFW. They do not want them in Oregon as they will disrupt the natural balance of our ecosystem.

It is possible there could be a problem because they do secrete a toxic substance (oil) ? through their skin pores, which is their defense against predators.
I like them but the population has increased greatly over the years...........................
