I wondered if there were lakes in Oregon or Washington with spots? I saw a couple posts pertaining to a small populations in Cottage Grove. Is that it?
I know people tend to hate them, and they can admittedly be a problematic species, but I love the little devils. I have caught some nice ones in Missouri, and let me tell you big spots are addictive.
Anyway, just looking for a little intel. I'm not sure if I can get PM's here yet, but I know how this stuff is, if anyone would rather PM me feel free.
