Columbia River Fishing Report and Forecast April 26th, 2019

Columbia River Fishing Report – Despite another weekend opportunity for sportanglers on the mainstem Columbia, only 88 spring Chinook were modeled to have been taken.

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast April 26th, 2019

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast April 26th, 2019

North Coast Fishing Report – It’s all but over for winter steelhead on the north coast. The last rain freshet did bring in another surge of activity, but by late April, there are few fresh fish available. It’s spawning season right now, and it may be best to keep away from the tail-outs, where spawners…

SW Oregon Fishing Report for April 26th, 2019

From Pete Heley at PeteHeley.com As of last weekend, the Umpqua River had dropped somewhat but was still muddy. Just before it muddied up spring chinook angling was the best it’s been all season – which is only fair in an otherwise crummy season. Anglers fishing the South Jetty area for lingcod and other bottomfish…

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast – April 19th, 2019

North Coast Fishing Report – Well, maybe it wasn’t as good as last year, but following the last significant rain freshet, action was ON for north coast steelhead once again. The river came into perfect shape on Saturday (coincidentally when the Columbia River spring Chinook season opened back up). Pro guide Rob Gerlitz (503-812-4950) reported…

SW Oregon Fishing Report for April 19th, 2019

From Pete Heley at PeteHeley.com Heavy rains last week greatly raised pond and lake levels and caused muddy water and near flood conditions in many streams and it is highly unlikely that Johnson Mill Pond, located in a swampy, muddy area, received its trout plant on schedule. Eel and Tenmile Creeks are not muddy and…

Willamette Valley/Metro – With Portland area rivers on the high side all week, spring Chinook fishing as well as steelheading has come to a screeching halt.

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast April 12th, 2019

North Coast Fishing Report – Like most of the Willamette Valley, the coastal streams too have been out of reach for most steelheaders. The river showed signs of coming into shape at mid-week, but shot back up with a mid-week rain system. Late season steelheaders have been anxious to get back on water to recreate.…
