Guys, I am a regular contributor in the Recipes Section, but I am seeking your advice. My in laws live in Beaverton, Oregon and we have a trip planned to visit in late August or September, and I want to go on a hunting or fishing trip while there. I really want to go on an elk hunt, but limiting factors may prevent that. My next best choice would be smallmouth bass. It is number two on my bucket list of fish to catch, bonefish being number one. Living in Georgia, I am a super experienced fisherman for largemouth bass, with multiple 8 pound + fish under my belt. But I've never caught a smallmouth, they are not plentiful here. I would appreciate any information for catching smallmouth within a reasonable drive of Portland. I would also consider a guided trip if anyone has any suggestions. I would greatly appreciate it!!
