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.
