Willamette River Fishing Report and Forecast May 1st, 2020

Willamette River Fishing Report – It’s definitely an off again, off again, kinda on, off again fishery here on the Willamette. There’s more challenging day than successful ones. We’re really going to test the number of fish per hour of effort this year. The Multnomah Channel has been a bit of an exception however. There…

Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Reports and Forecast May 1st, 2020

Clackamas River Fishing Report – With access limited, so are the fishing reports. That said, winter steelhead will be tailing off and more summer steelhead should start to show in the catch.

Central and Eastern Oregon Fishing Reports May 1st, 2020

From TGF contributor Tim Moran: The “traditional opener” last weekend was pretty good in most spots. Here is how it went and what to expect this week… Odell Lake –  Kokanee were biting from the surface down to about 30 feet.  I expect the schools are probably that thick so you can catch them  in the top…

North Coast Fishing Report April 24th, 2020

North Coast Fishing Report – With winter steelhead on the outs, and spring Chinook yet to ramp up, north coast anglers are in a holding pattern, especially given the fact that most boat ramps on the north Oregon Coast are currently closed.

Willamette River Fishing Report April 24th, 2020

Willamette River Fishing Report – The lower Willamette River was once again the place to be, especially if it was hatchery fish you were seeking. The reach from the mouth to St. Johns Bridge, including Multnomah Channel produced over 500 keeper springers last week, the best of the season of course. There were reliable reports…

Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Reports and Forecast April 24th, 2020

Clackamas River Fishing Report – With few boat ramps open, traffic and subsequent success rates are low. There remains fair to good numbers of wild winter steelhead in the upper reaches of the Clackamas with a few fresh fish still coming in. Again, there are few in pursuit for obvious reasons. Summer steelhead are starting…

Since ODF&W is on hiatus, we’re especially grateful for our friend Tim Moran’s report this week. Thanks Tim, take a gander at this load of information: Well this is (was) the traditional opener back in the day when there was such a thing – but the 3rd weekend in April still is a special weekend…

Columbia River Fishing Report April 24th, 2020

Columbia River Fishing Report – While there isn’t much to report from the Columbia River as far as salmon, steelhead or sturgeon fishing goes, anglers that know there way around the Columbia River bar and how to fish for bottomfish off of the sunken and south jetty did really well on the soft tides and…

Oregon and SW Washington Fisheries Update April 24th, 2020

Willamette Valley/Metro – The Willamette River has been the go-to spot for trollers, with the Multnomah Channel producing the best catches here lately. All reaches of river are producing now, but with the low, clear water conditions upon us once more, the lower river anglers are picking off the cream of the crop before springers…
