Sunday was another great day here in Southern Oregon, lower 80’s gotta love it. I went out fishing with some of my family that also enjoys fishing, my step sister her boyfriend and the their kids Raymond and Tahleena. We first met up at catfish cove at Lost Creek Lake, since the lake recently got full and the water is still pretty cold for bass, we decided to go up the road to where i fished Saturday at Rivers Bridge Campground on the far Upper Rogue River. Four of us fished for a couple hours there with out any takers, we were using spinners and Raymond was using powerbait. We still had a few hours of daylight left so we decided to go some where were we could catch fish, Medco pond was our destination. At Medco i didnt do near as well as last time i was there, i threw spinners for a couple hours and i only caught 1 small bluegill that felt like a monster because he had a bunch of weeds attached to him and the lure. After awhile i decided to switch up to what the kids were using worms and bobbers, this set up slayed the bluegills 😀 Their parents did ok fishing for bass, they didnt catch any that were real big but a couple 2 pounders, they went off and fished the other side of the lake so i didnt get any bass pictures this time. Thanks for stopping by and TIGHT LINES !! 😀
Yesterday my plan was to fish Willow Lake, it was recently stocked and im sure theres lots of hold overs. Well i decided to check out Lake of the Woods and fish lake before hand then when i got to willow the parking wasnt that great since the resort is closed. Lake of the woods is still froze pretty good, some big rocks didnt go through it, i threw them like Randy Johnson. Fish Lake looks good no ice and its almost full, i didnt fish there though, its still probably too cold for the trout. I had never fished Medco Pond before and had only been by there a few times years ago. I fished the north end i think, were theres a walkway that goes into the lake. I probably caught around 30 fish, 2 bass, a couple crappie, about 10 tiny rainbow trout, and the rest were bluegill ranging in size. It was real fun caught all the fish on a few differnt spinners, couple panther martins and a blue fox. I didnt even use bait today lol.
This is Lake of the Woods froze over
Those are rocks that i threw at the ice lol.
The next ones are of the rear of Willow Lake.
And now for Medco Pond, where i fished.
All of the trout were this size.
