Couldn't resist the nice weather on Saturday. I don't have much experience chasing bass in cold water - but thought I'd at least check out the river. I took my neighbor and my father and we launched in Newberg around 2 in the afternoon. The water temp showed between 45 and 46 degrees. My neighbor connected with the first smallmouth throwing a crank bait on about his fourth cast. We ended up putting 15 or so in the boat in just a couple of hours - all between 1.5 to just over 2lbs. A few on the crank - but most on a ned rig. It was a good afternoon - and the smallies are definitely moving around.
