- Springfield, Oregon
Me and windburnt took my boat up to cougar to try to stay dry. Was raining at 9 when we got there so we put on the rain gear and spent a few minutes moving debris off the ramp. once we got in and started fishing it never really rained exept for a short downpour that we were lucky enough to hide under a bridge for the most of it. started to rain again as we were leaving around 2 or so. only managed a few fish no keepers. we fished all over the lake at a few different depths with our 4 rods. all different types of flashers with worms and wedding rings and worms. We were gonna try blue river but as soon as we hit the highway it was raining hard. drove up and looked at the lake and it was really wet so we came back. crazy how it rained on the way up and down but never much on us or in town. took a picture of theis cool waterfall but it doens't look so cool in the picture. Guy at the vida store told us someone had been in there to use his scale. official weight was 8.5lbs. not bad for a rainbow out of blue river. there was a lot of debris in the lake and it is at full pool.
