Umpqua smallmouth


Active member
My buddy and I went out to the main Umpqua and did some smallmouth fishing last Saturday. We had ourselves one heck of a evening. We both tried a couple of different lures, and ended up settling on shad pattern rubber baits. We came home with these 3, but both of us ended up landing about 20 or so a in the hour and a half we were there. Hoping to make it out again this weekend a couple of times.

I have never eaten a largemouth so I have no idea. They are on my list of species to try and catch. My buddy and I grew up trout fishing, and are just starting to figure this whole bass thing out.
Largemouth aren’t the best eating, but marginally edible. Haven’t tried Smallies yet but I keep hearing they are quite tasty.

I've only eaten a few. We focused on Crappie usually, but the few I did have were pretty good

Other than saltwater stuff....snapper, mahi, wahoo, etc...
