Smallmouth Bass Fishing

Pound for pound, smallmouth bass fishing are considered one of, if not the, hardest fighting freshwater fish to go after. The Umpqua Loop has about 4000-5000 bass per mile. This is the one fishery where we can assure people they are going catching; other fisheries offer fishing, but going after the smallies on the Umpqua is catching.

This is a fishery that can be as challenging as you want for the most experienced fisherman or as easy as needed for the beginning fisherman. It is a sport fishery made for families, fun for all. We fish the Umpqua Loop which is about 20 miles of smallmouth paradise. The scenery is second to none. There are Ospreys, Eagles, Hawks, River Otters, Beavers, Deer, Elk, and an occasional Bear. Come enjoy a scenic day of catching fish with us.

Season: April through September
Peak Season: Mid-June through the end of August

Techniques: We use ultralight spinning and casting rods with all artificial lures like plastic worms, crank baits, top-water lures, etc.

Fly fishing gear: 4 to 6 wt. rods with floating lines and loop connections to add 5” to 10” sink tips. We use various flies; ugly bugs, wooly buggers, streamers, etc.
