STRIPED BASS FISHING

Oregon Striped Bass fishing is very good if you know the right Oregon Striped Bass fishing guides ......... and now you do! Todd Hannah offers guides fishing trips for Striped Bass on the Umpqua river and the Smith River. Striped Bass are present in the Umpqua and Smith rivers the entire year. They are one of the hardest fighting fish in the river, but also one of the most difficult to locate and catch. Late March through May are considered the best months for catching stripers as they tend to school and feed heavily as they prepare to spawn. Casting or trolling with large plugs, plunking with a variety of baits or fishing live bait under a bobber are all techniques we use to catch the stripers. Our striped bass average between ten and 20 pounds with a chance at catching a fish weighing more than 30 pounds. A Smith River Striped Bass weighing more than 64 pounds still holds the world record for stripers caught while fly fishing.
