First you need to know where you going to be fishing and what type of fishing you are going to be doing. There's baitcasting,spinning,fly fishing. Most people use baitcasters but spinning works great too. Personally I use a medium light rod 6-12 lb and 12lb braid on my baitcaster. I throw jigs,spinnerbaits,topwater,senkos,spinners. For size of bass you can find some places with big bass , I mostly catch 1-2 lb bass so I don't need heavy rod and line. Try googling bass for beginners. And decide whether your fishing baitcaster or spinning.

Where are you located? Columbia river has some good bass so does willamette. But you might find ponds or lakes that are close by and hold a decent amount of bass.

If your talking about dallas on the columbia, then just look for rocky structure and lot's of cover, mostly anywhere on the columbia, I live in portland and visit john day river during the summer for bass, one of the best bass fisheries out there. You can try mouth of deschutes river where it enters columbia I've caught a 7 pound largemouth there. But you have a lot of places on the columbia, use google maps and look for parking spots and sometimes you can see the structure. If you can I would recommend going to john day river, it's in rufus and try le page park , bass are biting now and you can also catch a bunch of different fish too.
