I have never fished in Oregon before (Washington native) and live in the Garden Home area of Beaverton. Looking to fish for trout/bass and was hopin someone could give me some pointers where to start. I tried Commonwealth and it was a lil too "public" for me. I was thinking the Tualatlin? would that be a good place to start? and what kind of rigging should i use (roostertails, plastics)? thanks in advance for any advice!

Welcome to the forum, this forum rocks. I am fairly new to Oregon as well so I dont have a lot of advise about where to go. Hagg seems to be popular with the Bass fishermen, and the williamette has bass as well.

Less than 50 feet from the Santiam River! :)
My best advice would be to check out the bass forum. We have some extremely knowledgeable bassers as well as the new state champion,Colby P. He also happens to be our new moderator for the bass forum.
