Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Reports for August 28th

Clackamas levels have remained about the same for a week and that level is about the same as the week before. Now, things are about to change. Flows on the Sandy River at the town of Sandy have actually dropped just a bit further to hover around 300 cfs. That’s not a great figure. The…

Central & South Oregon Coast Fishing Reports for August 28th

The non-selective coho season is scheduled to open Friday, September 4th. With additional ‘rollover’ from the selective season increasing the quota to 20,700, there’s a better chance it will actually go the distance through September 30th. Tuna fishing has been spotty for boats launching out of Depoe Bay this week with catches of one to…

Central & Eastern Oregon Fishing Reports for August 28th

White River has been spewing into the lower Deschutes periodically and this periodic discharge has been happening for a while now. Either fish above Sherars Falls if the lack of visibility is bothersome or head down below Pine where it will be cloudy but fishable on most days. Unless there are thunderstorms and rain this…

Oregon Fisheries Update August 27th – September 2, 2015

Willamette Valley Fishing Report – Although passage at Bonneville remains mediocre, wobbler anglers working the Kalama to Cowlitz stretch are starting to see fair catches of chinook. This reach will not be open long so action needs to ramp up quickly to call the season a success. The first week of September is often one…

Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Reports for August 21st

Clackamas water levels have dropped below 10 feet at Estacada with the flow down to less than 700 cfs. Although it’s hard to imagine, the Sandy River is slightly lower now than it was a week ago. In addition, anglers can expect to see periodic glacial runoff which will turn the river milky in hot…

Oregon Central & South Coast Fishing Reports for October 21st

Central & Eastern Oregon Fishing for August 21st

Hardware is out fishing flies many times over for steelhead on the Deschutes. In particular, spinners have been consistently hooking summers here with spoons a distant second.

Columbia River Fishing Report and Forecast August 21st – August 27th, 2015

Columbia River Fishing Report – Well, we knew it was due to break loose anytime. The Chinook bite is fully underway in the estuary right now. Early morning trollers are taking easy limits of Chinook, at least those that know the patterns to choose, coupled with a little bit of luck. Although some are trying…

Oregon Fisheries Update August 21st – August 27th, 2015

Willamette Valley Fishing Report – It’s clear that the fall run of chinook is underway at Bonneville Dam as over 6,000 adults passed the facility on August 19th. Effort remains light in the Portland to Longview stretch but with those numbers, interest will be ramping up in short order. A few B run summer steelhead…

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast August 21st – 27th, 2015

North Coast Fishing Report – All is relatively quiet on the North Coast front. With the ocean coho salmon season closed and district rivers and below summer time levels, it’s a pretty bleak situation for most fisheries in the area. Of course the one exception is the Nehalem Bay summer Chinook fishery. Summer Chinook action…
