Conditions : WILLAMETTE RIVER: This is still an in-between time for fishing on the lower Willamette as spring Chinook and summer steelhead come to a close while it’s way too early for winter steelhead or coho to be available. 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. Catch-and-release fishing for sturgeon remains as another option for Willamette River anglers.

As of Aug. 15 the passage count of spring Chinook adults at Willamette Falls stood at 30,317 fish, which is the unofficial final passage number for 2016 as springer counts come to an end. The summer steelhead counts continue at Willamette Falls with the September 2 cumulative passage showing 21,202.

USGS hydrological data for the Willamette River on September 6 has flows still near summer lows at 5,800 cfs, the water temperature down to 68°F, and visibility clear at 7.8 ft.

NOTICE TO LOWER WILLAMETTE RIVER BOATERS: The boat ramp at Willamette Park will be closed Sept. 12 – Oct. 31 for dredging and boat ramp improvements. For for alternate launches and more information visit City of Portland Parks & Recreation/Willamette Park.

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.
