Conditions : WILLAMETTE RIVER: The summer doldrums go on for the lower Willamette with salmon and steelhead fishing done until coho and winter steelhead begin to show up in fall. Warm water fish and sturgeon are still an option.

Winter steelhead passage counts ended May 31 with a very low season total of 822 fish passing at Willamette Falls while ongoing cumulative counts through August 10 for summer steelhead stand at a very low 1,999 and the spring Chinook count is now all the way up to 34,144.

Anglers will find there are plenty of warm water fishing opportunities on the Willamette for bass and small pan fish, working the rocky shorelines and around areas with structure, particularly near Cedar Island and Milwaukie.

The use of barbed hooks is allowed when angling for salmon, steelhead, or trout in Willamette River downstream of Willamette Falls (including Multnomah Channel and Gilbert River) and in lower Clackamas River upstream to Highway 99E Bridge. Barbless hooks are still required when fishing for sturgeon.

USGS hydrological data for the Willamette River on Aug. 14 has flows at 9,450 cfs, the water temperature falling to 72°F, and visibility excellent at 7.3 ft.

About: - The Willamette offers many warm water fishing opportunities to turn to when salmon or sturgeon are not available. Look for bass, crappie, or bluegill around rocky outcroppings and other structure such as old pilings or fallen trees. The local tackle shops should be able to set you up with the gear you need, as well as provide some expertise on the best places to try.

Misc Info: - Anglers are now allowed to keep up to three coho per day under a new “bonus bag” rule that took effect Sept. 1. Below Willamette Falls, anglers on the Willamette were already permitted under permanent rules to keep two fin-clipped adult salmon or steelhead in any combination. The new “bonus bag” rule allows retention of a third fish, as long as it is a hatchery coho, denoted by a clipped adipose fin.
