McKenzie River Fishing 7-12

Old report that I never got to blogging about on here. Did write about it on the Forum that the three of us post on, that’s where I’m copying and pasting some of it from enjoy! Jeanna and Ted are both members @ The Oregon Fishing Forum.com So the three of us went fishing one Thursday morning in July, the 12th.

Jeanna’s first fish of the dayMy only fish of the day

My day started out at 2am with the alarm waking me up after about 4-5 hours sleep. Made a quick stop at Winco grocery store for snacks and drinks and got yelled at for walking in an area where a guy was cleaning the floor, but I needed some cold tea. Met up with Ted and I followed him up to the boat ramp, I’m still new to the area of Eugene. We all met up at the Greenwood boat ramp then headed up to the Leaburg dam. The water was super low and even back rowing to the other side of the river resulted in lots of rocks being hit. But it sounded like most boats were hitting bottom too. On to the good parts. Jeanna tagged 2 Springers and had a really sweet Steelhead come unbuttoned after about 45 second fight, I got video of that fish and the 2nd springer. Couldnt find my camera in time for the first Salmon so no video of that one. I only caught a hatchery trout, it hit a plug in the last hole we fished, and Ted got skunked! Thanks for the boat ride Jeanna!!!

And here’s the video I made from this trip, you can see the nice Steelhead she lost too.

Melon Pie

Saturday morning I went over to Dave’s house, he’s my friend with a killer bass pond in his back yard, lucky guy!¬† Anyways, the fishing for me was great! I brought five nice bass to the boat, got all but one of them on video. I missed a couple bites too, Dave got skunked, he missed a few bites too. But luckily for him he can go down and redeem himself when ever he pleases. All my fish came on a Texas rigged 5″ Melon Pie colored Yum Dinger worm with a 1/16th bullet weight. Had a blast catching these bass! The only bad part of the day was when I missed the best action shot. The one bass I didn’t get on film jumped a few feet out of the water right after I ripped its lip, it was very sweet! Oh well, Ill get one jumping on video real soon at this pond! Check out the video I put together.

Fishing Dorena For The First Time

I recently moved to Eugene from Medford, and iv been loving¬† all the new waters I can fish! Iv heard many great thing about Dorena’s bass fishing, and its fairly close to Eugene. So Thursday morning I took my pontoon boat there at O’dark thirty. Finding a spot close to the lake in the dark was fairly hard but I managed to find a good spot to put my boat together and it was a short distance to the waters edge, I hate carrying my boat a long ways, especially if its steep. Didn’t get my first bass until 2-3 hours on the water, but it was a good one for my standards. I came upon a older man and his grand daughter I assume, fishing on the bank. I always give bankies plenty of room because I used to be one. After I made it back to casting distance from the shore I hooked into a nice Large Mouth Bass, it went for 3lbs 9oz on my digital scale. Not long after that the wind picked up, so I let it drift me back to where my car was parked. I proceeded to catch two more decent fish! The first being a Small Mouth Bass probably in the 1lb range.

The last fish of the day was kind of a fluke, it got me by surprise. Like I said earlier I was letting the wind drift me back to my car, and I was casting toward the grass. I wasn’t paying too much attention as I was pretty happy for the day catching a couple nice bass. Well I made a cast and some how the line got underneath my foot rest, so I proceeded to free it and once free I felt something on the other end of the line, and I set the hook! Turned out to be the nicest fish of the day, a nice 4lb 2oz Large Mouth Bass. All fish on this day came on a 5inch Melon Pie color Yum Dinger worm, the last two came on the wacky rig, and the first one was Texas rigged with a bullet weight. Check out the short little video I put together, you can see all three bass in it!
