Just researching for next summer. I spend July and August near Reedsport and want to fish the Umpqua for Smallmouth. I regularly fish EEl lake and Ten Mile lake and I'm looking for additional fishing grounds. I have a 14 foot aluminum fishing boat with small gas outboard and electric trolling motor and want to know if there are stretches of water where I can launch and then have a mile or two without rapids. I love to fish for Smallmouth and I'd like to do it by boat if possible.
