Oregon Fisheries Update August 7th – 13th, 2015

Willamette Valley Fishing Report – With the summer chinook run officially over, metro anglers aren’t that far from setting up shop for the fall run of upriver brights. A lull in chinook passage at Bonneville shows a clear separation of the two runs. Summer steelhead numbers are peaking and have nearly caught up to previous…

Columbia River Fishing Report and Forecast July 31st – August 6th, 2015

Columbia River Fishing Report – Although the main stem Columbia is suffering the same circumstances as many other local rivers, the bite doesn’t seem to be largely affected. For this late into July, the bite is good river wide.   Here is the ODFW Creel checks for the weekend. You’ll note that action remains fair…

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast July 31st – August 6th, 2015

North coast fishing report – with salt water fisheries the only options in Tillamook County, there really aren’t a whole lot of options right now. To further make things challenging, ocean weather has been less than ideal which also makes the bar on Nehalem Bay a poor option.   Ocean fishing over the weekend was…

Central and Eastern Oregon Fishing Reports July 31st – August 6th, 2015 by Michael Teague

Central & Eastern – While a few summer steelhead are being taken occasionally on the lower Deschutes, the better fishing will occur over the next three months as more fish move into the system. Nonetheless, there are some around and for early risers, an average of 350 summers have been counted at Sherars Falls in…

Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Reports and Forecast July 31st – August 6th, 2015

Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Reports – Despite a slight rise in level and flow through July 26th due to light precipitation, the Clack has dropped back down and is forecast to return to the familiar gradual moderation of flow for the foreseeable future. That’s about 10 days in the world of meteorology. Anglers are…

Willamette, McKenzie & Santiam Rivers Fishing Report and Forecast July 31 – August 6th, 2015

Willamette, McKenzie & Santiam Rivers Fishing Report – Perhaps it was the passing showers a few days ago. Of course it was. Water temperatures at Willamette Falls plummeted from 81 degrees to a bone-chilling 75 and the flow, well, the flow changed very little. Regardless, there are a few fish crossing now which is sorta…

Oregon Fisheries Update July 31 – August 6th, 2015

Willamette Valley Fishing Report – With a slight weather reprieve last week, anglers were after summer Chinook and steelhead in the gorge again. Although results weren’t fantastic, they were worth the effort for both species, given the water conditions anglers are faced with right now. Steelhead counts are running way behind last year’s counts, especially…

Columbia River Fishing Report and Forecast July 24th – July 30th, 2015

Columbia River Fishing Report – Action for summer chinook is still going on, for reasons I can’t figure. Effort remains somewhat low but gorge anglers, at least on paper, seem to be doing the best with a fish per boat average checked over the weekend. With fewer and fewer summers crossing Bonneville, even this kind…

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast July 24th – July 30th, 2015

North Coast Fishing Report – It’s almost all a saltwater experience these days and fishing isn’t all that impressive the great salt chuck anyway……. Anglers continue to look west for opportunity and although action is fair for coho, rare for chinook, non-existent for nearshore halibut and good for tuna, it’s not what we typically see…

Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Report – July 23rd

Lower than ever, the Clackamas is not a stellar fishing destination at this time. There are better options. Sandy River level and flow has gradually but steadily dropped over the past week. Without relief from precipitation, it’s likely to be this same report in the coming week as there ain’t no rain in sight. The…

Oregon Fisheries and Soapbox Update July 24th – July 29th, 2015

Willamette Valley Fishing Report – Statistically speaking, gorge boat anglers are still producing some of the best catches in the entire reach from Bonneville Dam to the Astoria/Megler Bridge. Effort remains somewhat subdued but boaters tallied a fish per boat in the weekend creel check. Steelhead counts are peaking at Bonneville and even though warm…
