Oregon lake fishing info site


New member
I am writing you get a little advice.

I am working on a new website (I am a web site media developer by trade) that is designed to be a directory site primarily for Oregon lakes and specifically fishing focused.

This site is not intended to be a revenue generator but rather a resource to encourage fishing in oregon's many lakes and potentially be of value to local resorts, guides, restaurants etc.

So this is what the site will contain.

1. Regional Directory of Lakes
2. Drill down to an individual lake - Include a description of lake type and details such as ...shallow lake depths to 65', cold water, best fished in April and October - Basic Stuff
3. Details on how to get there including maps
4. Details on the accommodations from camping to hotels/motels etc
5. Details of Fish Types, styles of fishing
6. Video of guides giving tips and tricks, locations (too much info? don't want to give away secrets?)
7. Local Bait/Tackle options to replenish your stocks
8. Restrictions and Limitations
9. Guides that may be available
10. No Forum - Link to this forum since you have it nailed.
11. Potential user videos and Bragging photos of course.
12. Local boat, gear rentals if they exist
13. Local Service centers in case you need a repair

Any help and thoughts would be appreciated

A simple FO is fine...or details suggestions

I have built other directory sites for my for profit business over the years, but this has always been a pet project I wanted to do in retirement since I am an avid Koke fisherman and have always had
the frustration of no knowing a lake, and having limited time...discouraged me from trying new lakes with little info.




Part of the reason i found this forum was because i was researching where i can do bass fishing in other places and if there were other species in that particular body of water. Too much to dig through and definitely not enough information. It would be awesome to see this.

Colt, thanks for the feedback. I am really early on in the development of the site, but its coming. I will send you the link in a week or two when I have a bit more information online. Thanks for putting together the forum...I will post a note on the site to refer back to the forum. I might be able to integrate it, I will look to see if there is an ability to pull in the forum feed into the site....would be great if we can keep them connected.
