I need some advice

Recommended Posts

How would I go about fishing a Slough? What would I use as far as bait/lures? And speaking of said sloughs, has anyone ever fished for Bass in the sloughs near Portland, Oregon?

Oxbow's, backwater, sloughs, whatever you want to call them all fish about the same. Fish the bank! This is when you break out the jigs and tubes and hammer any wood you can find. A slough is nothing different than a lake but on a smaller scale. Fish are easier to find and catch. Spinnerbaits and shallow crankbaits can be killers when fished shallow. Most of the time the fish never leave the bank unless the water comes up fast. Fish are very predictable. Sometimes your bigger fish will move into these backwater areas. When the river is muddy the backwater areas are the first to clear up because of a lack of current. When conditions turn south because of muddy water or high water those slough's are the first place I head to.
