Willamette, McKenzie & Santiam Rivers Fishing Report July 10th – July 16th, 2015

Willamette, McKenzie & Santiam Rivers Fishing Report – This writer didn’t look back over previous years of data to see if there was record of Willamette Falls flow at less than the current 5,730 cfs but that’s the low. To further complicate the situation, current water temperature is 81 degrees. Needless to say but said…

Columbia River Fishing Report and Forecast July 10th – July 16th, 2015

Columbia River fishing report – In what appears to be a near record run, summer Chinook anglers are realizing success is harder to come by. It’s no secret, warming waters is thwarting the catch.

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast July 10th – July 16th, 2015

North Coast Fishing Report – With freshwater fisheries virtually shut down, anglers remain focused on the ocean. Coho action out of Garibaldi remains fair but should start improving soon. It may be too early to expect limits but action is certain if you put in enough time. Chinook are a rare catch along this stretch…

Oregon Fisheries Update July 10th – July 16th, 2015

Willamette Valley Fishing Report – Warming waters continue to depress catch rates on the mainstem Columbia for summer Chinook and steelhead. Although fair numbers are still being caught, the summer Chinook run is winding down on the mainstem, as evidenced by dam counts at Bonneville.

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast July 3rd – July 9th, 2015

North Coast Fishing Report – Last weekend, the offshore coho season opened up and results were not disastrous. Some ports certainly fished better than others and Garibaldi was certainly not a Highliner port. There were reports of decent action to the north however but many boats did not get to fish long before the winds…

Columbia River Fishing Report and Forecast July 3rd – July 9th, 2015

Columbia River fishing report – Although certainly not an uncommon sight, effort remains pitifully low for ocean salmon out of Astoria area. What’s especially odd given the good fishing, is that the action is quite good! Anglers fishing from the lower Columbia River are finding good numbers of Chinook and coho in adjacent waters outside…

Willamette, McKenzie & Santiam Rivers Fishing Report

On July 1st, counts at Willamette Falls reflected the story well for anglers sweltering in unseasonable-even-for-July heat. Zeros across the board; nothing moved. Is it any wonder? Feel that bead of sweat trickling down the side of your neck? Actually there was some summer steelhead movement as the passage of a single steelhead was recorded…

Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Reports

Same river, same story, different week. This, as the Clackamas continues its gradual moderation in level and flow. If there’s a difference this week, it’s in the water temperature as it’s higher than ever. While Sandy River water levels and flow have been fairly stable over the past 10 days or so, the water is…

Central & South Coast Fishing Reports

Offshore conditions are marginal through the weekend. It’s worth checking but smaller craft are likely to be bay-bound. If forecasts remain accurate, for those able to get away into the coming week, the ocean will lay down, behave nicely and onshore winds will become pleasant breezes. ODFW news, July 2, 2015: Spring All-Depth season—landings during…

Central & Eastern Oregon Fishing

Trout fishing is fair on the lower Deschutes with Caddis and Pale Morning Duns significant now. Summer steelhead will be showing and if all goes well, should provide a worthwhile fishery by mid-July. Grande Ronde levels are low for this time of year which has caused some concern that the fall steelhead run may be…

Oregon Fisheries Update July 3rd – July 9th, 2015

Willamette Valley Fishing Report – The Columbia remains the bright spot for anglers fishing the metro area.

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast June 26th – July 2nd, 2015

North Coast Fishing Report – With spring Chinook all but over, anglers will once again keep focus to the west as the offshore coho season opens this Saturday. Although historically not a bang-up fishery from the get-go, action for offshore coho will likely be better than Trask River or Tillamook Bay for that matter, spring…

Columbia River Fishing Report and Forecast June 26th – July 2nd, 2015

Columbia River fishing report – With mainstem temperatures continuing to rise, salmon and steelhead anglers are becoming less impressed with their success.

Summer Chinook salmon fishing remains most productive right at Bonneville Dam for anchor anglers using spinners to entice…
