You have to be more specific with your Question such as Fly Rod or Spinning, Bait or Lures.
All will work and all will work anywhere on the lake including the Channels. We get Bass everytime we go over there while trolling Flat fish for Trout. Early in the year when it is cold
They seem scattered and are hardy to catch. When the water warms up it's a field day. Mostly
look for warm temperatures.
OK That said. I would like to see someone argue that the Bass have not impacted the trout in that
lake. I would like to see a comprehensive study done proving otherwise.
My proof is that at one time there where plenty of Trout and plenty of Fisherman and it was the
finest trout water in Oregon.
The Bass were Bootlegged into the lake by some thoughtless Person and the lake hasn't been the same since.
End of story.
Catch and Kill.
Two for one. Catch a small bass Hook em in the back and toss him in the water until a big bass
takes it down then step on it and feed it to the Birds.
