Did you know that June 18th is the official “Go Fishing Day”? Actually, the whole month of June is an ideal time to get out your fishing gear and enjoy this fun sport. Many people like to keep all their fishing tackle tucked away in storage units in Bend, Oregon, storage units in Portland, Oregon or storage units in Eugene, Oregon. Well, now’s the time to pull out all the necessary gear from storage to go fishing!
So where are the prime fishing areas in Oregon? If you’re close to Bend, then you can enjoy some excellent fly fishing spots on the Upper or Lower Deschutes Rivers, the Crooked River or the Fall River. There are rainbow, brown, brook or bull trout along these scenic rivers. For visitors and residents near Eugene, you have access to great fishing areas in eight rivers, 249 lakes and the Pacific Ocean. Here you’ll find bass, Sturgeon, Pacific Halibut, Chinook salmon, Rainbow trout and Steelhead. Of course, if you’re close to Portland, then the famous Columbia and Willamette Rivers are perfect for catching sizable Chinook salmon, Steelhead and Sturgeon.
Now that you know where to go, what will you need to bring? While every fisherman has his own basic equipment, you should double check that you have these essentials packed and ready before you head out fishing. Obviously, you’ll need rods and reels, but also pack your tackle box with lures, extra line, hooks, wire cutters, and bait. Other things that you may want to have on hand are buckets, coolers and a first aid kit. So break out the equipment from your Oregon storage units!
