Willamette River Fishing Report November 15th, 2019

Willamette River Fishing Report – It’s a sturgeon show now, and not many people are taking advantage of the catch and release opportunities.

Willamette River Fishing Report – The river is blown out, but just prior to the blow-out, springers and steelhead were being caught IN LOW NUMBERS at Sellwood Bridge and the Milwaukie area.

Willamette River Fishing Report December 28th, 2018

Willamette River Fishing Report – Willamette flows are subsiding, allowing steelheaders interested in working Meldrum Bar a chance at Clackamas River bound steelhead. Of course there are steelhead that are bound for upper Willamette tributaries too, but that run remains depressed with the hit they’ve taken by sea lions in recent years. That will change…

Willamette River Fishing Report and Forecast February 23rd, 2018

Willamette River Fishing Report – Reports of springers continue to come in, albeit far from impressive. But given the fact it’s still February, and the Willamette remains in stable shape, there’s not much to complain about when a spring Chinook hits the deck.

Willamette River Fishing Report January 5th, 2018

Willamette River Fishing Report – Following the high water, anglers didn’t put out much effort this week, more due to depressed spirits than poor water conditions. Plunkers at Meldrum Bar have largely given up this year, although they may want to reconsider given the Clackamas run is starting to get underway. High water looks to…

Willamette River Fishing Report October 19th, 2017

Willamette River Fishing Report – No Willamette report this week, with the exception that there remains good numbers of sturgeon available for catch and release fishing. Don’t even think about going into the Willamette to catch your keeper on Saturday, it’s illegal, and immoral. I hope the state police will be monitoring. The best catch…
