Central and Eastern Oregon Fishing Reports for January 31st, 2020

Central and Eastern Oregon Fishing Reports for January 31st, 2020

Central and Eastern Oregon Fishing Reports From our friend Tim Well, it’s that time of year when fishing reports from most of my sources have dried up and folks are holed up. Bird hunting is mostly over, there just aren’t many people out there…but the fish are always looking up and they gotta eat! Lower…

Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Report and Forecast January 31st, 2020

Clackamas River Fishing Report – There is no fishing report, mostly due to the fact the water has been really high as of late. Just today (1/30), it was coming into decent color, but still sweeping the tree line. It’s scheduled to have another bump this weekend, so it’ll be the middle of next week…

Southwest Oregon Fishing Reports for January 31st, 2020

Southwest Oregon Fishing Reports for January 31st, 2020

Southwest Oregon Fishing Reports From ODF&W A series of winter storms have continued to hit the Oregon coast over the last several weeks and has pretty much kept recreational anglers off the ocean. So no new reports or information on how bottomfish fishing has been. If ocean conditions cooperate, lingcod fishing in January can be…

Willamette River Fishing Report January 31st, 2020

Willamette River Fishing Report – You might know where this is going. High, colored water kept anglers off the water and for good reason. There’s no reason to be on it. It’s too high and frankly a bit dangerous and fish would likely be fairly scattered for the catching. It’d be a pity of the…

Columbia River Fishing Report January 31st, 2020

As one might guess, there isn’t a lot going on in the mainstem Columbia right now. That said, there are plunkers working lower Columbia beaches and they’re catching some winter steelhead and reliable rumors suggest a springer or two has been hooked (one landed). Colder, high flows are conducive to success along lower Columbia beaches…

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast January 24th, 2020

North Coast Fishing Report – After all the early season doom and gloom reports coming out of Team TGF, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that there has been some fabulous fishing on the Wilson and Nestucca systems lately. The Wilson in particular fished really well on Monday (1/20). One guide reported landing 11 steelhead…

Clackamas River Fishing Report – As the season gets underway, interest is growing on the Clackamas River and some lucky anglers are finding fish with some degree of persistence.

Columbia River Fishing Reports January 24th, 2020

Columbia River Fishing Report – I guess I haven’t been paying much attention, but 5 Chinook have been tallied at Bonneville Dam to date. I’m not sure when they passed, but they must be classified as spring Chinook, seems like an anomaly to me. Maybe more headline news, some guides are reporting good sturgeon fishing…

Willamette River Fishing Report January 24th, 2020

Willamette River Fishing Report – No love in sight… With the Willamette River just now starting to rise, it won’t get any more fishable in the near future. Rest assured however, when it does clear, the Sultan of Sellwood and his fellow anglers will be in pursuit of the season’s first spring Chinook, likely to…

Central and Eastern Oregon Fishing Reports for January 24, 2020

Central and Eastern Oregon Fishing Reports From our friend Tim Lower Deschutes River –  There are still Steelhead around but their going to act like trout so be ready when you’re fishing nymphs as they will actively take them.  Trout fishing around Maupin is good fishing nymphs and BWO’s in the afternoon when the hatch…

Oregon and SW Washington Fisheries Update January 24th, 2020

Oregon and SW Washington Fisheries Update January 24th, 2020

Willamette Valley/Metro – With rivers remaining high now, and for the foreseeable future, steelheaders will once again be challenged by high water conditions. Prior to the current high water event, there were some quality steelhead taken on the Sandy. The Clackamas hasn’t been quite as productive, which is predictable. Here’s what pro guide Jeff Stoeger…

Southwest Oregon Fishing Reports for January 24th, 2020

Southwest Oregon Fishing Reports From ODF&W Ocean swells have kept surfperch anglers off of the coastal beaches. Once the swells calm down, fishing for surfperch should pick up. Surfperch anglers have the best success using sand shrimp or Berkley Gulp sandworms. Steelhead are here! Fishing has been pretty hot on the Chetco. Conditions lately have…
