Foster Lake tips?

Hey all, I'm relatively new to the area. I grew up bass fishing in southern california, and moved to Brownsville almost two years ago. I believe Foster Lake is the closest body of water to my home and I have been itching to go fishing. Any advice for the lake?

The bank along the hi-way has been the best for me with smallies and largemouths. Not sure how well it fishes when the water is down though.

Foster Lake fishing

If you want to try for trout...slowly troll a Ford Fender, Doc Shelton, or Beer Can flasher set. Behind that tie on 3' of leader w/ a 1/2 green and 1/2 black Wedding Ring spinner. Tip the hook with 1/2 to 1/2 of a worm. Let out about 100' of line, and BAM!

and for bass and trout alike... late winter and early spring try just plain silver little cleos or kastmaster spoons. if they dont produce try a silver/blue one either brand.

Do you have a boat or are you banking it?

I'll have a boat. Are there any bass ponds in the albany area? I'd like to find some fishing holes that are a quick drive

Bond Butte pond is probably the closest to Brownsville. Not sure... it might be electrics only. Gravel boat ramp.

There is also bluegill, crappie and catfish. Flyfishing for the panfish is a blast.

Ever thought about Greenpeter, great fishery...From Sunfish to Koke's. Large body of water but very productive,year round boat ramp.

I was starting to wonder about Green Peter. How are the bass there?

There are club tournaments there every year but its very steep banks... seems like it would be tricky to fish. I need someone to teach me :)

I don't know. But, you could call ODFW and I'd bet that they could answer that.

I'm trying to plan multiple spring trips, thanks again everyone. I'll be sure to give the rooster tails a shot, I have a bunch that have been just sitting in a box for years.

Is it any good for those without a boat if the banks are steep?
