Hey everybody, I've been lurking on this site for a while and finally decided to join in on the conversation since there seems to be a lot of talk about fishing the central and south valley here.

I am a freshman at OSU studying fisheries science this year and am currently on the bass team. I am always looking to try new places and love to fish with new people! I have been lucky this year to have an epic spring so far with 4 fish over 5 pounds (two of them are over 7!) from public ponds and the fishing is just heating up.

I am currently bank bound while at school but hope to be getting some sort of pond buster in the near future.

I'm looking forward to contributing to this community!!

welcome to the board. So what do they teach in fisheries science? Is it all about how to manage stock ponds & manage fish habitat? What is your goal, to work for ODFW?

So far I haven't really gotten into a lot of the actual fisheries science, I'm stuck doing chemistry and math for the first two years, but there is a strong emphasis on conservation and also management of the species (for consumption/harvest). I guess my eventual goal is to work for the odfw but who knows what will happen before then!
