Best Warmwater Fishing in Oregon:
Freshwater bass, crappie and catfish hot spots
Oregon might seem like the land of trout and salmon, but its wide variety of climates and water types also give it some prime habitat for the non-native species of warmwater fish that are well-established here.

The most popular species for warmwater anglers are largemouth and smallmouth bass, crappie and catfish. Bluegill and other sunfish, yellow perch and several other panfish also are plentiful.

The following links will take you to more information about Oregon's favorite warmwater fisheries:
