I had paddled the lake before and caught a few but knew with yesterday's conditions it would be perfect: and it paid off.

I was able to paddle the flats and find 3 really nice fish, one of them being my 2021 Oregon PB so far.

All 3 were cruising in the sun, but as I went to net the last one I didn't scoop low enough, and grabbed just the hook in the net, which immediately unhooked the fish. I have been thinking about a larger net, now might be the time.

5lbs 13oz
3lbs 6oz
Lost one was somewhere in between, it chased my bait down 3 times before comitting, and I saw it out of the water once as it jumped away from my net

Plats are ways of organizing land, and the Plats are organized by alphabet. The reservoir in Sutherlin is on Plat I road, so is called the Plat I reservoir. Nice fish. I am more of a trout fisherman at present, but am trying to learn more about fishing for bass. In Sutherlin we have Plat I, Cooper Creek reservoir, and Ford's Pond, as well as all the Smallmouth in the Umpqua River.

Visited today for about an hour, but got a break in the wind and booked it out of there at the perfect time. Supposed to be SW at 14moh and I believe it

Only spooked one decent fish

I heard a rumor that they had put some largies out of Florida in there.
That would definitely explain their size, but usually the mouths on Florida strain are as large as the girth at their stomach

Could be a mix

Everyone I talk to says there ain't no bass in there!

I have seen 5 5 pounders pulled out of there in the last 2 years. It seems like whenever you hook up with a bass in there its normally over 3.
