Just setting the record straight....The real name of the Garbage Hole is ....Earl Cornelius Latourette Memorila Park! Latourette Feb 10 1889 to Aug 18 1956 was a Clackamas County Judge from 1931 to 1950. In 1950 Gov. McKay appointed him to the Oregon Supreme Court. He later became Chief Justice of the Oregon Supreme Court and died while holding that office. So when you hit the Garbage hole think about the Judge for a moment and your chances of nailing a steelhead will go up quite a bit. It is easier to say the Garbage Hole than Earl Cornelius Latourette Memorial Park. I bet if the Judge were still around he would hold us in contempt!
