I am up in the Corvallis area and have been hunting the willamette for some time now. I am wanting to get down Fern Ridge Lake and do some duck hunting there this season. I have a 14' aluminum boat with a little outboard and am curious if it is doable to motor around out there, or if I even need a boat to access the duck hunting spots around the lake? I have heard that the lake is pretty full of stumps, which is why I ask. I am looking forward to hearing back. Thanks!

You can forget lanching a boat in FR lake its just a big mud hole this time of year cause they drain it down each year for flood control.

yeah there was no rain this year. it never got deep, it only got half filled. A Jon boat may work if you like dragging it through the mud.
