- Sherwood, OR
For the first time I was disappointed at Hagg Lake. It has been my go to spot for perch, bass, and the occasional trout for quite a while. I was out there 4 and 1/2 hours yesterday. (7:30 AM - 12:00 PM) It was cool out, there was hardly anyone there. Thought it was gonna be perfect. I tried 3 different spots. My normal spots had lost so much water that I had trouble identifying them. Most of my normal spots had turned into a mess of vegetation and mud. I got one bite off a nightcrawler and thats it. I tried rainbow and orange Powerbait, worms, a crankbait lure, and (baby bass) Fluke soft baits. The last place I was at was just getting annoying because of two boats and their wake boarders. It was like surf fishing due to the waves they were creating. It finally started raining and I decided to call it a day. I'll wait to go back after the rain can replinish the waters and it cools down a bit.
