Long Tom River near Harrisburg, Oregon
Feeding into Fern Ridge Reservoir, Long Tom is a completely different river depending on where you fish it. Above the reservoir you will find a nice population of wild cutthroat trout that love feeding on flies. Below the reservoir you will find a warm water river that supports good fishing for panfish, catfish, and bass. There are even a few sturgeon and tons of suckers. Above the reservoir fishing is catch and release from November 1st through late April when fish move up into the river to spawn. There is a State Park Picnic area on the upper stream but there are no campgrounds anywhere on the river itself.
