Willamette River Crappie and Smallmouth Bass Fishing

Willamette River Crappie and Smallmouth Bass Fishing

When the weather finally starts to push triple digit temperatures, the river is your best bet to catch fish. That moving water keeps the water temps at a level that keep the fish active, where in ponds the fish are just trying to escape the heat. That is the plan in this video; hit up the Willamette River for some crappie and smallmouth bass fishing.

We also fish the bottom for some carp; and though we don’t catch any carp, we get to do something unexpected, fun and beneficial to the fish population! And… feed a heron while we’re at it.

Remember, the giveaway for my Top 5 Trout Fishing Lures is still going on. To qualify, you’ll need to…
