Columbia River Fishing Report and Forecast April 12th, 2019

Columbia River Fishing Report – The last few days of the Columbia season wasn’t impressive. I fished with about 16 other guide boats in a large tournament on Wednesday. Collectively, there had to be nearly 100 rods fishing in the tournament. The grand total for the day was 2 fish, and one barely tipped the…

Willamette River Fishing Report April 12th, 2019

Willamette River Fishing Report April 12th, 2019

Willamette River Fishing Report – Well this will be easy… The river is blown out, and has been for several days. It’s surely got plenty of fish hiding away somewhere, but is far from fishable. The lower Multnomah Channel fished fair just before the blow-out, but since that was the only place to fish for…

Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Reports April 12th, 2019

Clackamas River Fishing Report – As you can see, it hasn’t been a productive week on the Clackamas: We’re still over the bank on the Clackamas so there’s very little to report from this system. I did glean one piece of information from a PGE biologist today; when the Clackamas was fishing good a few…

Central and Eastern Oregon Fishing Reports for April 12th, 2019

Central and Eastern Oregon Fishing Reports – No updates from Tim Moran other than the area’s waters are blown out. From ODF&W It’s springtime on the lower Deschutes River and recent spring rains have made the river high and muddy. But once the river falls back into place, trout fishing should be good from Mack’s…

SW Oregon Fishing Report for April 12th, 2019

From Pete Heley at PeteHeley.com The Charleston ODFW office showed me how to access the trout stocking schedule. I had been going to the home page, selecting “FISH DIVISION and then selecting “FISHING RESOURCES” and then clicking on the “TROUT STOCKING” ICON. This method no longer redirects you to the trout stocking schedule. After a…

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast April 5th, 2019

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast April 5th, 2019

North coast fishing report – We are screaming towards the end of steelhead season, but given the previous year’s history, we could be in for another fair push of fish into North Coast systems. Action on the Tillamook two, the Wilson and Nestucca Rivers, had remained challenging in the prolonged low flows. That should all…

Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Reports and Forecast April 5th, 2019

Clackamas River Fishing Report – With very little pressure, and the fact we’re still in peak season on the Clackamas, late arriving winter steelhead should still be a viable option for Clackamas River anglers. There have been recent reports of fairly good fishing, but I didn’t witness it on last weekend’s float. We were fishing…

Willamette River Fishing Report and Forecast April 5th, 2019

Willamette River Fishing Report – It’s been a consistent week on the Willamette, catches remain best in the lower two reaches of the river, but action is fair near Oregon City too.

Columbia River Fishing Report and Forecast April 5th, 2019

Columbia River Fishing Report –  With only a handful of days left for the Columbia River fishery, either the run is tracking late like it has for the last handful of years, or it is over-predicted. That’s assuming we can rely on catch rates that have historically told the tale of fish are present in…

Oregon and SW Washington Fisheries Update for April 5, 2019

Oregon and SW Washington Fisheries Update for April 5, 2019

Willamette Valley/Metro –Unprecedented opportunity for spring Chinook has yielded high effort and fair results in the recent week. Catches are tracking ahead of the 5-year average and in the lower (Multnomah Channel) and middle (Portland Harbor) reaches of the Willamette, catches almost tripled from the previous week. Realistically however, catches are still only averaging a…
