the best thing that i have had luck with, from the bank, is throwing on a wedding ring with a couple of split shots above it and a small piece of worm canting it as far as i can and slowly reeling

and for bass during the summer i cast some jigs and slow baits or when the weather and water gets warm i will throw on a cast master or some kind of finesse bait and i usually catch the hell out of the bass out there
but most of the ones i catch are all about the same size usually about 2 to 3 pounds but they are out there

Do you use a worm on the wedding ring? I've never heard of someone casting them before.

Galesville is my favorite lake to fish. Some days you catch them and some days, nothing. Fish mostly for bass but once in a while, i'll fish for trout. Ive caught many trout on bass plugs and such. Theres Largemouth, smallmouth, trout, crappie, bluegill, cats and suppose to be yellow perch, but ive never seen any. The bass takes care of a lot of the smaller ones.

of us limited out by 2.00. 9 rainbows and one that was different from them,didn't take a picture,Doh!:wall:
think it was a small coho,more silver than a rainbow and had a pointed tail.
fished from the bank,left hand side of the boat ramps,with power eggs on the bottom,
worked almost every cast,so happy that WwF has lost her skunk,it was beginning to put
her off fishing.:clap::clap::dance:

I am confused here. They are now planting coho to make landlocked coho? So they look just like a kokanee but they aren't or are these in fact kokanee being stocked?

Weird I've never heard of them planting landlocked Coho before, but it's true they put em in there! Probably had some extra smolts lying around so they tossed em in there? So do they have Coho and Kokes, or just the Coho? Personally I'm not a big Koke fisherman, it was fun when they were a little bigger on avearge. Used to fish Paulina for them all the time when used to average 13-15 inches. Now a lot of places seem to be overpopulated with 8-10 inch fish. I'm not gonna go half way across the state for 8-10 inch fish. Quantity over quality is not one of my favorite tactics. IMO Kokanee have been grossly mismanaged in OR, hopefully these Coho will be a better fit.

This is from ODFW Recreation Report

GALESVILLE RESERVIOR: rainbow trout, bass

Galesville Reservoir is open to angling year-round. The reservoir was recently stocked with about 5,000 adipose-clipped hatchery coho that should be catchable size this summer. In Galesville Reservoir, all landlocked salmon are considered trout. Thus, there is a five per day trout limit, with only one trout over 20 inches in length allowed for harvest. Last year’s coho which are 12 – 14 inches long have been biting recently. About 8,000 trout were stocked in 2009, and stocking for 2010 has begun with about 3,000 trout so far. Anglers are reminded all bass between 12 and 15 inches must be released, and only one bass over 15 inches may be taken per day. Galesville now has a campground. Call 541-837-3302 for information on camping and boat launching conditions.
