North Coast Fishing Report December 6th, 2019

North Coast Fishing Report – Well, just when you thought it couldn’t “rain” anymore, it’s pouring. The poor Wilson River Chinook are dying in droves. Low water has parasites infecting them and killing them pre-spawn. It’s a terrible situation but obviously it’s important to close the fishery to all Chinook fishing. The river remains open…

Columbia River Crabbing Report December 6th, 2019

Columbia River Crabbing Report – Yes, that’s because there isn’t any fishing going on here. Crabbing however remains excellent for those targeting the high tide. There are plenty of people out along Social Security Beach so it would behoove you to try a less populated location, ideally deeper water, to find better crabbing. It’s likely…

Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Report and Forecast December 6th, 2019

Clackamas River Fishing Report – Wild coho do run in the Clackamas well in to December but few anglers are pursuing them so it’s hard to say in what abundance they may be present. One thing is for sure, they aren’t moving fast, and there hasn’t been any sign of winter steelhead to date. You…

Willamette River Fishing Report December 6th, 2019

Willamette River Fishing Report – It’s all about the sturgeon right now. We’re still early for winter steelhead although there are certainly come in the system, likely in the Oregon City area. They don’t know what to do with themselves with the low water (likely preventing them from crossing Willamette Falls) and no sea lions…

Oregon and SW Washington Fisheries Update December 6th, 2019

Oregon and SW Washington Fisheries Update December 6th, 2019

Willamette Valley/Metro – Did somebody shut the water off? Winter steelhead passage at Willamette Falls has dropped to zero. I don’t think there’s any sea lions to thwart them, just low water at this point. There may be some steelhead stacking up by Goat Island, but no one is fishing for them. Catch and release…

Central and Eastern Oregon Fishing Reports for December 6th, 2019

Central and Eastern Oregon Fishing Reports From avid Angler Tim Moran Lower Deschutes River –  I woke up the folks at the fly shop in Maupin to see what was going on.  The report is a few steelhead fishermen/women are still out there and they’re getting a fish or two. Trout fishing is good in the…

Southwest Oregon Fishing Reports for December 6th, 2019

Southwest Oregon Fishing Reports From ODF&W Fishing for lingcod and rockfish was very good this past weekend. Many anglers caught big lingcod while fishing out past 40 fathoms. The daily bag limit for marine fish is 5 plus 2 lingcod. The harvest of cabezon along with copper, quillback, and China rockfish are now all closed…

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast November 28th, 2019

North Coast Fishing Report – Brutally cold weather and sparse numbers of Chinook have anglers staying inside instead of pursuing salmon on Tillamook Bay. None-the-less, there are some Chinook available for persistent trollers, but a little  lot of luck is needed. The Ghost Hole remains the main target with still some effort happening in the…

Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Reports and Forecast November 28th, 2019

Clackamas River Fishing Report – With only wild coho available on the Clackamas, effort has dropped and anglers are awaiting the winter steelhead run, due later in February and March. What few hatchery fish remain, are in Eagle Creek and in full spawning mood right now. Over 3,000 adults made it back to the hatchery,…

Willamette River Fishing Report November 28th, 2019

Willamette River Fishing Report – You’d have to be pretty motivated to dig into catch and release sturgeon fishing on the lower Willamette. There has been minimal effort and therefore, few reports are coming in about how the fishing actually is. Fall fishing for sturgeon here can be good and it should be picking up…

Columbia River Fishing (Crabbing) Report November 28th, 2019

Columbia River Fishing Report – No fishing to speak of, but if you’re watchful of the weather, crabbing should be good if you hit the tidal window right. We have a reasonably soft incoming afternoon high tide so as long as that killa east wind doesn’t cause any grief, you can get your people into…

Clackamas River Fishing Report – You won’t find much competition for fish on the Clackamas this time of year. Although there is good numbers of wild coho available, few have interest in this catch and release sport. Most are awaiting winter steelhead, which are still months away from fishable number. The Guide’s Forecast – For…
