Some good information here, but outdated. For example, for Trail Bridge Reservoir the suggested method for fishing is bait. Bait is no longer allowed at this location, and is a ticket-able offense. I regularly get checked by the fish police here. BTW, a rubber or plastic lure is considered bait. The best lures on Trail Bridge are a black fuzzy, like a maribou, or a spinner, particularly in blue. This book isn't even close to the mark. Perhaps there is a newer version available somewhere?

Useful general info on Oregon lakes.... But... Maps are not very helpful. This would be five stars if the author put in a map in each section showing you where the lakes/streams were. Everything is in alpha order so you need to google every lake unless you know exactly where the author is talking about... This is especially the case with rivers and streams... upper rivers and lower rivers may be intuitive to people who know the area .... but... If I knew the lakes/rivers that well why spend money on this book?
