    Report: I love spots but hope they dont take over and just have tons of dinks like shasta...I also have to say I have caught some smallmouth out of kellys slough about ten in all and Im sure thats not all of them, I dont know how long they have been in there, but a few of the ones I caught were right at 2lbs. They are talking about removing Gold Ray Dam, wonder if the smallmouth will take over the Rogue like they did the Umpqua

    Report: (NOTE: Lost Creek is incorrect above!!! I had to select something in order to get this posted to your site!!! --- Lost River and Topsy Reservoir in Oregon are not available in your list!!! Please note and add them.)

    Hello All! I just stumbled on this Web Site, and thought I would share the two places that I have had bass fishing success in Oregon.

    Recently, I have fished Craine Prairie Reservoir, just southwest of Bend, OR. I have caught 4 & 5 lb. bass out of this lake, and many other people I know have taken 6 to 8 lb. fish, too. Personally, I like to use only top water plugs - I'm a sport fisherman, not a meat fisherman - and I love to see the fish hit at the surface!

    Previously, I lived in Klamath Falls, OR and fished a warm water river called, Lost River. It is primarily used for feeding the farms and ranches with irrigation water. This river runs through the Klamath Basin, the Langell Valley, the Poe Valley, etc. There is a small dam on the Lost River, in the Klamath Basin, that provides a nice "lake-like" area to fish for largemouth. Our family has taken a lot of bass out of this little area, and many big bass as well.

    I caught the "undocumented" Oregon state record for largemouth out of Lost River - an 11 lb. bass - back in 1980. I never turned it in for credit! We just didn't want everyone and their brother showing up at our special fishing spots. We have caught many 8 pounders, 6 pounders, too. In general you can expect 3 pounds to 5 pounds as the norm.

    Previously, my family and I have kept this place a secret to ourselves, in the state of Oregon, just because we didn't want everyone in Northern California or Oregon to show up.

    I am now in my 50s and live in the Portland area, and would like to see more people in Oregon enjoying the growing bass fishery in our beautiful state.

    So, if anyone is in that area, they should give Lost River a try.

    (Also, go to Topsy Reservoir, along the Klamath River, -- they have great bass fishing there, too!)

    Regards,
    - Mike Jones

    Tips: Be patient. I use topwater plugs, (Jitterbugs, Hula Poppers, Bass-O-Renos, etc.) Cast to shorelines with tree overhangs, look for points, or underwater structure near deep holes. Fish early in the morning, or in the evening hours. Be patient and let the plug sit after the cast. Twitch it. Then, a slow, lazy retrieve. Stop the retrieve at times. Then start again. Try a fast retrieve, too, to change things up.

    Also, try a black Slug-Go soft plastic - medium sized. Cast it and let it slowly sink. Twitch it. Then do your thing on the retrieve.

    Good luck.

    Report: Took my Dad and brother in law out on Saturday. Fishing was slow. We did manage to catch a few fish on the split shotted platics and carolina rigged plastics. I also caught several fish on crawdad colored cranks and one on a popper. Most fish were in the shade on the steeper banks. Looking forward to the fall bit up here!!!!
