I talked to a guy about two weeks ago. He said it was around 45 down deep and close to 50 near the bank. But that was before the tropical weather. Didn't make it there last night but for sure I'll be there this evening.

Nice was wondering how that was going. Fished for bluegill tonight at ballenger and only got one. It was really windy and i think that was the problem. My buddy managed to catch a 2.5" bass took it home to get to know his pirahna. Had a couple of friends fishing the north bank that managed to catch a couple bluegill. They went to the back pond and seen a couple hogs.

I know a guy that can get me access to the ramp...

If so anyone interested in the front seat...will be in about 4-5 weeks. He gave me a choice on the date and I figured this would be a lot warmer and I really want a Bass I can stick a bucket in its mouth. I will be bringing my own homemade DuPont Spinners with rattle traps built in... Anyone have some time in early June?

No state records or anything but they get to about average size compared to the ones i have seen in my many years of catching them around town. Ballenger could be hiding some monster bluegill but i haven't seen them. I've also seen a few crappie caught out of there and heard stories of some big ones.

Im sure I missed it. How do you get to ballenger? Can I launch my 17' 50hp there? I must be dense, I thought I was the only basser in Eugene. This is a cool sight.

There is a ramp in the very back pond...if you like contact the owner or get cozy with one of the current employees and you are in. Some of the very best Bass and Carp angling around, and only 4 min from my drive way....lucky me:dance:

Shame

I just got back from Ballengers. Spent about 20 minutes fishing and 30 picking up over 2 cases of beer cans.:mad: I just missed whoever it was because they emptied their cooler ice on the ground and it was just starting to melt.

I sure hope it wasn't one of our members and if it was you know who you are. You had better hope I never catch you leaving your crap there because I will turn you in to the law. I will sign the complaint and follow it all the way through court.

And if you do decide to be and idiot and do it again at least don't be 100% idiot and leave them on the bank next time instead of throwing them in the water.:(

That's rediculous. I can't believe people do that. It's things like that that keep us from fishing the better locations.

I got a couple VERY light hits but no hook ups. Probably tiny bluegill.

That would be overkill. I feel like my 12' aluminum with a 6h is almost to much but when it gets windy I hate to oar.
