What are the good and bad things about living in Oregon?

Oregon is an unfortunate object lesson for why you don’t put all your economic eggs in one basket. Particularly if your economy is rooted in extractive industry. Russia is another. Fortunately, Oregon does not have nuclear weapons.

I’m new here too, also by way of Colorado. There is no love here for anything with stabby fins. They are widespread, abundant, and largely ignored. The bass fishing here is outstanding, people have no idea. Ten times as good as Colorado. There are spotted bass here, if you care. The walleye are more or less confined to the Columbia, with a few minor exceptions. There are no pike, tigers or muskie. One (1) pond in the state has wipers. There are anadromous stripers in a few rivers.

Inshore salt is fun, productive and inexpensive to book for day trips, for example out of Depot. Book a crab combo day for bottomfish and fill your freezer. Crabbing is good. I’m the worst example of a clam digger in history, but yeah. Clams.

It is wall-to-wall STS here buddy. Either people actually fish for them, or just identify with the brand, like folks born into an affiliation with a sports team. Hating spiny rays is baked in to the pudding here, but there are a few mouth-breathing degenerates such as myself who pursue them.

You are either young or were on a different forum than me. I was Swimbait on CF, never had a profile on Fx. I did the Carpe Trutta blog for a while.

Don’t hesitate to give me shout if the spirit moves you.

Cheers.

Not young. I was on fxr with the same handle i have on here. And agreed on the bass. People here consider a two to three pound bass small. And thank you, I might just hit you up, even if it is just to fo fish!
