April Photos


The Dalles - April 8
Bob Judkins, Russ Miyada & Tom Nelson headed to The Dalles for some spring bass fishing.  The weather was sunny and warm with little or no wind until mid-afternoon.  It was a perfect day to catch 9 good-sized smallmouth and let a few get away.  As usual, it was catch & release fishing only.

Willamette River - April 12
Today Bob, Russ & Tom hit the Willamette for a day of bass fishing.  Even though the water temp was only 45-49 degrees there were some nice bass to be had.  They only caught six smallmouth bass but the there was a 19 7/8", a 19", a 17 1/2", a 17" and two smaller but still nice bass.  It's time to get out there and start bass fishing!

Vernonia Lake - April 30th
The club fish-in at the lake fell on a cloudy and sometimes breezy day.  An algae bloom turned the 51 degree water green.
Members caught mostly crappie and trout.
