Id hit the Calapooia side for smallmouth. I did that a lot last summer. I tore up my knee and can't do much banking this year or Id have already been down there.

Just curious.....did anyone do some fishing in the Calapooia? Want to go with my sons in the morning and was thinking I would go there or is there another place on the Calapooia that is good.

I went to the Calapooia this weekend. Couldn't keep the smallmouth off my line, problem is that some of them were 3 inches long. Caught a couple that were 10 inches or so, but it got old having my worms stole by little ones.

The Upper Calapooia, south of Sweet Home, used to hold some 'bows. An ol timer I knew, used to limit out every season opener. But, that was 25 years ago. It was also on Weyerhouser land, so you might need permission. The rest as I recall, is private land.

Thanks TD...I knew the gate is closed now on the Weyerhauser land. I want to stick closer to home...

Montieth has the best access, look for the rope swing ;). You can keep it simple tube jigs or curly tail grubs. Dont be afraid to let them drop to the bottom, they'll pick em up.



... or just drown some worms :)
