Have I ever mentioned that I find bass fishing to be the most boring fishing I do all year? I ended up doing a couple bass trips in the last few weeks and they were pretty fun. The first trip was for Camp Millenium, a week long camp here in Roseburg for kids with cancer. One day of camp week is a float on the Umpqua for bass. I didn't take pics but we had 18 guide boats all floating together. It really was a good time. I had 3, 6 yr olds and they got so excited the first few fish they caught. Lots of fish were caught and everyone had a great time. Then this weekend, a friend brought his two boys down from Salem and we fished some private water on the South Umpqua not far from my house. It was new water to me and I was shocked by the size of fish in there. We got some big ones but there were larger fish hanging out under the boat that I could get to commit. It is the only game in town right now so I think I'm going to take the fly rod down there in the early morning and see if I can get them to rise for poppers. It works on the Main so I'm sure it will work on the South. here are a couple photos from Saturdays trip.
