Some of the Oregon waters preferred by tournament fisherman include
the Columbia River, Willamette River, and Umpqua River for some
of the best smallmouth bass fishing in the world. Hagg Lake has
state record smallmouth but can be a very tough lake. It does have
half of the lake reserved as a no wake zone and the other half
for water sports so it is popular. Tenmile lake and all the coastal
lakes, Crane Prarie, Dorena Res., Green Peter Res., Cottage Grove
Res., all of these locations are excelent largemouth bass fisheries.

and the OR state record smallmouth bass came out of Henry Hagg
Bass are aggressive feeders and agile enough to chase down and catch most of their favorite foods. They are most easily caught during a feeding spree but can also be enticed into striking an anglers bait for reasons other than hunger. They are predatory by nature and at times will strike at anything that enters their domain. If it moves and they can get it into their large mouth, bass will attempt to eat it.
