You can't go wrong with a crappie jig and bobber tip the jig with some worm. You can fish for catfish and carp with corn and worms on the bottom, or with a bobber. If your fishing for bass a small spinnerbait or crankbait . Trout fishing can be good at times use rooster tails or worms.

I have never fished much before -- tried EE Wilson and Junction City without much success. I live in Corvallis. I am just wondering whether it makes sense for a newbie to fish here. Guess I really need a school of hungry fish to hook one. :D

Also, is this the GPS location of the dam please? 44.118917,-123.293824 ( I do not know how to post a link with GPS location, but map.google.com can find this coordinate). If it is, shall I just walk down the dam and try fish in the water?...

Thanks a lot! I know my questions are just really silly!!
