    You have to pay to play at Hagg.

    And while true St.Louis Ponds address says Hubbard, you actually take the exit at Woodburn (while going south on I-5) to reach it... and Woodburn is closer to the ponds than is Hubbard. Just click my original link :bluelaugh:

    Try this spot for catfish, bass….

    Haven't fished there for 30 plus years but worth a try. Also anywhere on the Willamette but be careful it's a big river. Champouie park is worth a try. The Tualatin river is great place with a small boat or from bank.

    These are all good spots. I think st. louis is more behind gervias.

    How about any river spots??

    River spots can be very territorial, most wont share. There are people out there making 50 k catching tagged pikeminnow for bounty.

    You can see why some do not share. If I told you my favorite spots and you brought 10 buddies what would all my friends say. I have a friend who lost 3 long time relationships due to bringing me along:bluelaugh:

    When I started out exploring, bound and determined, the first big one I caught was all by myself. Thats how I learned it, and its the best way to pass it along. Its a journey, and more enjoyed by oneself.

    Get out and talk with people, a lot of well know spots are out there. And when you find a place by yourself and figure out what technique, why, how and the rest it is all the more satisfying.

    Take a drive up the upper Clackamas, a day spent up there and you'll be back.
    If you like hike in, look at the Bull of the woods wilderness area.
    Warm water fishing? Drive up the Columbia, there are many side ponds that can be fished and the main river can be excellent for Bass.

    You want trout?

    ODFW Trout Stocking Schedule

    It starts about this time of year. Google the locale, grab a rod, tackle and bait, point you car in that direction and put the hammer down!
