New guy from Oregon

Recommended Posts

Hey all, 

I'm from southern Oregon. I've been bass fishing since before I can actually remember. I don't even remember catching my first keeper. My dad has told me the story and I have a picture. 

This state overall is pretty terrible for bass fisherman. ODF&W lives and dies by planter rainbows and hatchery salmon. Bass are that unfortunate thing that eats planters and screw with Orvis disciples as they kick around in their float tubes trolling woolly buggers. 

The best big bass lake in the state is fly fishing only. The second best big bass lake has been destroyed by stunted small mouths. Selmac used to be awesome until the word got out. Tenmile can be awesome but it's fished so heavily it's ridiculous. 

Overall it's hard for most people to get into bass fishing here. The club I grew up fishing in as a co-angler is about to fold up. The club in the town I live in now folded up in 2013. The north part of the state is salmon, the central part is rich fly fisherman who want bass wiped out completely, and the southwest part is for planter trout. 

It's frustrating, and you have to drive a lot, but for those of us hardcore bass guys here we catch some good sized fish (for this region).  

I look forward to learning new things on here and being jealous of people that live in good bass states.

Welcome to the bass source. You could always try the Columbia for smallies.
