I wasn't going to post anything but, here it is the first oregon bass of 2011, a 2.7lb smallmouth out of emigrant it was my second trip of 2011 in Oregon the water temp was 38 degrees :confused: caught on a brown tube in around 14' of water as you can see it is about as pale as a dang carp just goes to show the water clarity,... muddy.... hope this winter is a quick one this cold sucks, i will be out again this weekend maybe one trip for smallies and the other for monster largemouth again!! :D, i fished agate also water temp was a tad warmer but not too much couldnt get a bass only a perch and a small trout there both caught accidentally while bass fishing...... give the lakes another month or so it should start to get half way decent.

i attached a pic on the bottom of some spotted bass from shasta in my tournament i had middle of last month :) so far in 2011 i have 7 bass caught

Nice catch! You always slay the Bass. :clap: Have you ever had any luck catching smallies in the winter in a small river system? Just wondering?

Colby is the wrong person to ask that to. lol :D

Also only trout are supposed to be eatten at that lake he was at.
Oh, Didn't know that. I was just honestly curious. Last year the kids caught a ton of smallmouth at Brownlee, the ones out of the lake tasted muddy, the ones out of the cleaner creek arms tasted great. Just trying to see if that was normal or not.

Nice fish. So what kind of plastics do you use in Oregon? Did you catch any of these fish on plastics?
