Hey everyone! Just found this forum and have been looking through all the great posts and wonderful advice. I live east of Portland and usually fish the stocked lakes starting in June. This is the first year I will have the chance to start fishing this early in the season. I don't have access to a boat and would like any tips you might have on lakes in the Willamette zone and/or Northwest zone that have good bank fishing access. Also what bait and rigs seem to work best this time of the year? I'll be taking my friends 12 year old son with me this weekend and am trying to figure out places to go. Thanks in advance for any help.
