    Report: Went out for a few hours Saturday in The Dalles pool. It was COLD. Did manage to hook 8 and land 6. Fish came from 5-25ft. Mostly all on soft plastics in the deeper range. Fish ranged from 2-3.5lbs. Nothing big but they are out there. Was not finding the fish schooled up which is odd for this time of year. Picked all of them off here and there.

    Report: Hello there, I just got a kick reading the newer reports, because I just realized that dip-shit was talking to me! ME! A sixteen year old kid, looking for some fun fishing around this fine state I've grown to love. Further more, that posting was close to three years ago! If you're still pissy about it it's time for you to get over it, if you have just recently been affended by my presense in this state, than, you have clearly not been contributing to this site. If it is the latter, and seeing as you are ASS, please either be productive or refrain from using this site. I would like to, also, mention that at no time in my posting did I ask personally for any "good spots or tips" only for an increased use of this site - Ya don red yursef good, how far did you get in school? I would like to appologize to the general community for even responding to Matt here and not in the forum, but I would like to point out that he and his predjudice views are what is inherently wrong with our society, and the reason we, as Americans, are hated. So, for the sake of everyone around you don't be an ass - you accomplish nothing! Matt, you have failed at even angering me, seeing as I have written all of this with a smile on my face - you are are an idiot! I would, however, like to thank both Marcus and John for defending me and this state, they are good people, as are most Oregonians! Thanks You all and good luck fishing!
    City: Bend

    Tips: Please use this site for it's intended purpose. I appologize for my misuse and will delete this posting in a matter of days. Good Luck and Tight lines!

    Report: Got onto the bank of the Columbia at around 11am and started throwing 3" pearl blue grubs with a shiny 1/4 ounce head and a steady retrieve keeping it about 2 feet from the surface and ended up catching 33 smallmouth before 4pm. The fishing dropped off at around 2pm. Switched grubs to a split green and brown color and also caught some on that. The largest I caught was around 20", let it go because it was full of eggs. Caught another around 18", BBQ that one. I did lose another nice one, probably 16-18" - shook my hook when it was about 3 feet from me. I'm going back in a couple of weeks.
    City: Biggs

    Tips: I'm a bank fisher because I'm poor. I cast and retrieve while I walk around the bank until I get a fish, then I hang out there and fan back and forth in all directions until I don't catch anything. Then it's time to move around again. GOOD LUCK.

    Report: It's true that not all oregonians are idiots. It just happens that the previous guy to post IS an idiot! Poor grammar and spelling while defending our great state just sets back Oregon's image that much more. Don't hate...just learn your Edumacation properly before condemning others.
    City: Portland

    Tips: Bass fishing is great at henry hagg lake. Just wait for someone to catch one and beat them senseless. Works 9 out of 10 times.

    Report: I am posting this to earn some fishing carma. I was fishing the mouth of the willamette. the tide was out and it was windy and choppy. I was bottom bouncing works as usual, But hooked three of my nicest smallmouth yet. The largest was about 20 inches and broke my rod when i wrecklessly lifted it from the water and let it hang on the line. I've also seen some big bass taking minnows at the srface doen there.

    Tips: I'm no pro, but what i know is to find some structure and fish off the bottom.

    Report: I was fishin in a little inlet and i was fishing with a (brown roster tail spinner) and i counted to 5 sec. and i saw it about 11 feet away and then a 4 1/2 LB. smallmouth hit it!
    And i was fishing for trout so my drag was very low and so the smallmouth riped the line out and so i had to reel it in very fast and i had 4 lb. test and a lutralight rod! After about 5 minutes i got hit and it was very pretty. And then i let it go!
    City: Portland

    Tips: Fish with a spinner and cast it as far as you can and count to 5 and reel it in at med. speed

    Use a 1/4 once. Roster tail (pink or brown for bass) and (green and blue for big trout)
