- Inner SE Portland
I'm in inner S.E Portland and looking for some nearby spots to chase panfish with flies. Anybody have any ideas? I have fished the willy a bit for panfish but my luck has been not so good. I have pulled a few random bluegill and a couple of crappie out of it in the summer months while fishing for smallies, but it looks unfishable at the moment. High, fast and murky. I have also fished a few of the ponds out towards Gresham that get stocked with trout but have gotten blanked each time out. I grew up in the south where every flooded ditch was full of bluegill and other sunfish and really enjoyed fishing for them. I would like to practice my casting before trout season gets into full swing by going after some panfish but have no idea where to go. Any help pointing me in the right direction would be great. Thanks a ton.
