    Report: think what you will just dont think it on the reports page, it is funny that you think selmac is a bad lake not only that you think its a turd witch i find absolutely absurd. I will be the first to say Selmac is EASILY without a doubt, no room for argument one of the best if not THE best bass fishery in southern oregon. sure its pressured and could use just a bit of management but its better than the other local lakes by a longshot, why you cant catch fish there is unclear to me i have got numerous over 5-lb largemouth out of there this year so far and more to come. sure it gets tough but where doesnt i got 2nd at the last howard tourny with 5.-- lbs the only person to get a limit both days to top it off, its the instant cold snap turning them off;......but as i said earlier think what you want, im glad to hear the "bad" news. selmac is a killer lake i love it and hope it doesnt end up like out other lakes.--- but in this report there will actually be up to date experience, fished selmac last week got a lot of fish not much overall size got a 2.5 on a swimbait early and a few more to follow it was very windy that day and got fish on all sorts of baits from senkos to swimbaits, on top of that all summer this lake has produced time and time again big bass ever since late march.

    Tips: some may not like it i say good i let the days on the water speak for themselves a 5 fish 1 man 23-lb post spawn limit at a supposed "TURD" lake,LOL....lets end it and get to more on the water experience,as far as im concerned toho etc... should not EVER be brought up in an oregon forum let alone compared to a local ORE, lake you have got to be kidding me- dont mean to go on a rant but c'mon

    Report: nice fishing reports!!!!, its for reporting your catches not for conversation.florida out of all places, Selmac is one of the BEST places to fish in southern oregon when i hear its a "turd" i just laugh. im not gonna disagree on pressure and the idiots taking fish...."You guys are watching too many bass fishing shows on Versas and trying to live that life here in Oregon" who are you referring to i was the last post in october of '09."And oh yea, i let them all go including the 9 pounder" no big bass in oregon, dont worry i let go the 8.1,7,6.5, and multiple 5's this year.......think what you want selmacs if selmacs a turd in your opinion think that way more fish for the rest of us to catch!- selmacs a good lake it can produce good fish every trip if fished right, if this lake is more carefully managed for the future it will stay that way. the pressure is high now i agree but selmac is worlds away form a "turd".

    Report: I love my bass fishing, but water and weather were brutal. Snow fluries, major wind gusts and we went tent camping. Not very smart. Had to break down and catch "trout" I hate to admit it.
    Bass fishing will turn on with some consistent weather

    Water Clarity: Stained (2-4 foot visibility)

    Report: got on lake around 9:30am fishing buddy got 2 right off the bad on a rattle trap before i even got a 1st cast in both 1.5 lb Lm

    fishing died for awhile after that, then i hooked a 1.5 lb on crank bait after 1hr or so pounding the water with plastics with no bites.

    keep on throwing crankbait rest of the day.

    had a total 9 fish between the 2 of us with the best one maybe 2.5 lb
    City: Central Point

    Tips: fish crank bait real slow with a stop and go retreve 8-9ft water just ticking the tops of the weeds was working the best.

    Report: Fished Selmac from 8am to 3:30pm today. Fishing was very slow, I caught two fish all day. Both fish were 1.5-2lbs. I talked to a number of boats and only one boat had caught a fish. The Trout fishermen were also struggling to get bit. Both fish came off of reaction baits, first one on spinnerbait and second one on rip bait.
    City: Central Point, Oregon

    Tips: I didnt see any fish near the bank, and nothing holding on wood.
