Oregon Fishing Adventure

Postby Ozark Flip » Mon May 04, 2009 12:01 pm

I usually don't post fishing reports outside of the Sierra mountains but..... Moose, JMat and I all went to Cresent and O'Dell Lakes for the past four days and we caught Brown trout, Bull trout and Macks. I caught a 10.5 lb Bull Trout but seriously, I was lucky to be standing closest to the rod at that partucular time. The Bull was caught using planer boards (a very popular East coast fishing technique). We were targeting rainbows with the boards when the Bull trout slammed the rod. I hope you all enjoy the pics as much as I enjoyed the fishing and excellent company. The Bull Trout was immediately released. The Bulls are endangered and must all be released. The quickest way to distinquish the Bulls from the Macks is the Mack's big split-tail and much larger fins. The Bulls will have red spots too. We used boca grips to ensure a good clean release without any gill damage.
