Nice freakin' fish man! :clap::clap: Where did all those beauties come from? They look healthy as can be, great coloration. As far as bass around portland, somebody on this forum can/will guide you to some fish. I'm an hour and a half south of portland, and there's some really good bass to be had in the Salem/Albany area.

Need more info to get you on the right body of water for you.

Are you wanting largemouth or smallies?
Are you wanting numbers or trophy size fish?
How far are you willing to travel?
Are you fishing from the bank, float tube, or a boat?
Do you want to fish a river or just lakes?

There are tons of places to fish for bass but just like Cali each place is differnt and the more info we have about what you are looking for the more likely are to get you to the right body of water.

For example I like to do most of my fishing close to home, I have a boat, I prefer smallies, and I don't mind the river. For those reasons I fish the Willamette River in Salem(the launch is less then 3 miles from my front door)
If I wanted largemouth, fished from a float tube, but still wanted to fish close to home I would fish the ponds in Minto Brown Park. You get the idea.

Those fish you caught bring back memories for great bass fishing in AZ. I miss that. You will find plenty of smallies on the Willamette and columbia but you are going to be hard pressed to find really large bass. The climate doesn't allow for it. Hagg lake does have the small mouth record for Oregon and it is only an hour or so west of Portland near Forest grove. Good luck when you get up here. I live just south in Wilsonville. Look me up when you get here.

Central Oregon is the best place to find truly huge Large Mouth Bass, Crane along with Davis lakes are absolutely spectacular for these fish. If you have the chance during the months of July and August you owe it to your self to try these waters, the only thing better than catching a huge Large Mouth on a spinner bait is working a popper fly at Crane and landing a double digit fish using a fly rod...simply amazing fishing. Not to mention the Trout fishery at both lakes.....Just a thought.
