Best Fishing in America news blog
A lot of behind-the-scenes work is finally paying off with a brand new series of articles that lets you quickly pinpoint the best fishing spots in any of Oregon's 36 counties.
Sorry, Disabled Oregon Fishing is no longer in service.
The long wait is over: My friend Maddy Sheehan's "Fishing in Oregon" is finally out. This brand new eleventh edition has been widely updated and expanded, now covering more than 1,300 lakes, rivers, bays and other fishy bodies of water. There are a ton of great maps that are alone worth the $29.95 cover price. I've always found this book to be an Oregon angler's best friend, especially if you like to try out new fishing spots now and then.
Just in time for Father's Day, the book is making its way to various stores as early as this week. I understand Fisherman's Marine will be the first regular store to have it because they're sending their own truck to Maddy's place today.
Or, the easiest way to get it might be to have Maddy mail it to you herself. That's how my copy is coming! Order it online through her website, www.flyingpencilpublications.com.
For more information, you can find Maddy's press releases announcing the publication of her 11th edition here.
Bass fishing sometimes gets overlooked in a state so full of trout, salmon and steelhead.
But bass fishing is easy, relatively inexpensive, close to home and, frankly, it's a hoot. Oregon is blessed with some world-class smallmouth bass fishing and also has some really nice spots for largemouth bass.
The Oregon Bass & Panfish Club's Rich Tombleson has shared an article he wrote a few years back with our website. It covers everything you need to gear up for several of the most popular bass-fishing techniques that will catch both largemouth and smallmouth bass around Oregon.
I know it's October and dreary, and although fall bassing can be great, you might be thinking about salmon right about now. But this article will be on the website when you need it:
This article comes to us courtesy of a new partnership we are starting with nonprofit fishing groups who work to make our sport better by improving fish habitat, fishing access and angler education. The Oregon Bass and Panfish Club is our trial group, and we plan to add others.
