From Eugene, I have a 24' sailboat but I don't think it would make a very good fishing boat.
If you are just out goofing around, try Munsell or Mercer on the coast North of Florance from the boat ramps. I have been over there in the winter and caught a few. It may be a little cold, but that is what long underwear and snuggling is for. Good luck, Qwa
Thanks, I am actually looking at heading to Siltcoos. Do a bit of camping and dunk a spinner or 2.
