Shad fishing with my family on the Willamette River

Picture of shad fishing with my family on the Willamette River

Shad have started going over Bonneville Damn, so that means its time to start fishing the Willamette River for them. Katie has every other Tuesday off from work, so I have decided to leave early from work on corresponding Tuesdays to take the whole family shad fishing.

A quick fishing trip to Rock Creek Reservoir

I haven't been fishing in awhile and when my friend John suggested we go trout fishing sometime, I thought of Rock Creek Reservoir. It's a 100 acre (when full in the spring) reservoir and is stocked several times in the Spring with rainbow trout. It shrinks down to a pond by the end of summer. Rock Creek Reservoir is located in Tygh Valley within the Mount Hood National Forest. It's about 6 miles WSW of the town of Wamic. Rock Creek Campground is located on the Southeast shore of the lake and has 33 sites with water and outhouses nearby.
