North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast December 13th, 2019

North Coast Fishing Report – It just keeps getting easier for us. With all Chinook closed on the north coast, it’s now a steelhead show. And it’s early for most systems so this will be a short report. There have been steelhead caught on many north coast systems with the Wilson, Three Rivers, the Necanicum,…

Columbia River Crabbing December 13th, 2019

Columbia River Crabbing Report – With no fishing to speak of, outdoor enthusiasts will continue to rely on the lower Columbia for their crustacean needs. There will be a low tide and high tide option over the weekend, with the afternoon high tide option being the best for most crabbers. Crab cooking can be hit…

Southwest Oregon Fishing Reports for December 13th, 2019

Southwest Oregon Fishing Reports From ODF&W Bottomfishing is now open to fish at all depths. Fishing for lingcod and rockfish was very good this past weekend.

Central and Eastern Oregon Fishing Reports for December 13th, 2019

Central and Eastern Oregon Fishing Reports for December 13th, 2019

Central and Eastern Oregon Fishing Reports From avid Angler Tim Moran Lower Deschutes River –  Steelhead are still being caught in the stretch between Warn Springs and Maupin.  The fish being caught are mostly falling to spey fishermen swinging flies or fly guys fishing indicators and big stone-fly nymphs. Trout fishing also continues to be good…

Willamette River Fishing Report December 13th, 2019

Willamette River Fishing Report – It’s awful lonely out there. Despite good water conditions for steelhead and sturgeon, interest for either species is not at an all time high. One friend stated that he had heard an abnormal number of splashes that sounded more steelhead-like than sturgeon. He lives just a bit downstream of Meldrum…

North Coast Fishing Report December 6th, 2019

North Coast Fishing Report – Well, just when you thought it couldn’t “rain” anymore, it’s pouring. The poor Wilson River Chinook are dying in droves. Low water has parasites infecting them and killing them pre-spawn. It’s a terrible situation but obviously it’s important to close the fishery to all Chinook fishing. The river remains open…

Columbia River Crabbing Report December 6th, 2019

Columbia River Crabbing Report – Yes, that’s because there isn’t any fishing going on here. Crabbing however remains excellent for those targeting the high tide. There are plenty of people out along Social Security Beach so it would behoove you to try a less populated location, ideally deeper water, to find better crabbing. It’s likely…

Clackamas and Sandy River Fishing Report and Forecast December 6th, 2019

Clackamas River Fishing Report – Wild coho do run in the Clackamas well in to December but few anglers are pursuing them so it’s hard to say in what abundance they may be present. One thing is for sure, they aren’t moving fast, and there hasn’t been any sign of winter steelhead to date. You…

Willamette River Fishing Report December 6th, 2019

Willamette River Fishing Report – It’s all about the sturgeon right now. We’re still early for winter steelhead although there are certainly come in the system, likely in the Oregon City area. They don’t know what to do with themselves with the low water (likely preventing them from crossing Willamette Falls) and no sea lions…

Oregon and SW Washington Fisheries Update December 6th, 2019

Oregon and SW Washington Fisheries Update December 6th, 2019

Willamette Valley/Metro – Did somebody shut the water off? Winter steelhead passage at Willamette Falls has dropped to zero. I don’t think there’s any sea lions to thwart them, just low water at this point. There may be some steelhead stacking up by Goat Island, but no one is fishing for them. Catch and release…

Central and Eastern Oregon Fishing Reports for December 6th, 2019

Central and Eastern Oregon Fishing Reports From avid Angler Tim Moran Lower Deschutes River –  I woke up the folks at the fly shop in Maupin to see what was going on.  The report is a few steelhead fishermen/women are still out there and they’re getting a fish or two. Trout fishing is good in the…

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast November 28th, 2019

North Coast Fishing Report – Brutally cold weather and sparse numbers of Chinook have anglers staying inside instead of pursuing salmon on Tillamook Bay. None-the-less, there are some Chinook available for persistent trollers, but a little  lot of luck is needed. The Ghost Hole remains the main target with still some effort happening in the…
