A logical lay-out, decent maps, excellent index, good directions and a concise but informative writing style make this book a must for anglers traveling the Beaver State. Shewey breaks down Oregon into seven geographic zones, and a separate appendix lists warm water fisheries (if you're targeting bass, panfish and catfish). His notes on cold water fisheries include timings of salmon and steelhead runs as well as remarks regarding sea-run cutthroats. He's also included reports on clamming and fishing from a number of beaches, as well as a few notes about nearshore marine fisheries. Even one-acre backwoods ponds with marginal fisheries are included in this comprehensive, well-edited book. While avid anglers will always crave more--and more detailed--information, at 420 pages this book provides enough detail to get your foot in the door on any fishery in the state.
