Oregon Coast Lakes

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Looking at booking a trip (with the boat) up to Oregon next year, probably during May or June. Three waters I'm looking at are:

Tahkenitch Lake

Tenmile Lake (and possibly neighboring lakes)

Siltcoos Lake

The primary reason I'm looking at these is because they have rental properties on the waterfront, so I can tie up each night and don't have to drive an hour to the launch each morning.

Has anyone fished these lakes for bass? Are there better waters to look at, or is there a better time of year to go?

Thanks!

I grew up fishing those lakes in the summer. Tenmile is Oregon's "go-to" bass lake. Every club usually has one regular event there and their final/championship event it there. There is usually a BASS qualifier, the state open is there, etc. It's not all that big and it gets fished a ton, but it's still a good lake. 

Silt, Tahk, and Eel aren't as good as Tenmile overall but anything in Coos County will be better than anywhere else in the state. If you're coming to Oregon that's the place to be.

Yup...Ten Mile is probably your best option.  Tach is beautiful but can be seriously tuff.  If you want an adventure head to the Columbia....amazing in spring.

Exactly! The main Umpqua is a blast for smallies too and you'll be right there. Work from Elkton to Scottsburg in a float tube. 3lb class fish are an every cast type of thing and they'll bite d**n near everything. 

A normal day at Tahk is about one fish per 100 casts, if that. Tenmile has docks, boat houses, floating garages, mats, pads, creek channels, etc. It's basically the only legit bass lake we have.

Tenmile is better but Tahk is picking up. One of the guys from my club fished it last summer and tore it up. He said it was the best he had seen in a long time.

That's what I hear too.
