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.

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…

Columbia River Fishing (crabbing) Report – Crabbing remains good in the lower Columbia River, but competition is fierce. It’s best if you crab away from the crowds to reduce the competition and don’t be afraid to crab the deeper water if you’re rigged appropriately for that. Be aware that gear can sand in on the…

Willamette River Fishing Report November 22nd, 2019

Willamette River Fishing Report – Looking through the historical jack counts, it appears that jack counts are not a reliable indicator if the following year’s adult returns. That said, I’ve heard managers mention that jack counts look as if they are underperforming this year. It was a good return this year, but far from some…

Oregon and SW Washington Fisheries Update November 22nd, 2019

Willamette Valley/Metro – With little going on in the basin, folks are looking for opportunities to the west, but those opportunities too are on the wane.
