Conditions : WILLAMETTE RIVER: The Willamette has been holding onto high and turbid conditions, making things tough on anglers for several days now. Things will likely get worse before they improve so expect it to take into next week at the earliest before the river settles down again as rainfall in the lower valley typically takes a day or two before affecting flows here in the metro area.

Steelhead crossings had shown some improvement as flows had been declining slowly but this could likely turn around later in the week. Winters moving above the falls as of January 21 had reached a total of 538, not a great number for late January.

USGS hydrological data for the Willamette River on January 25 shows flows at 63,100 cfs, the water temperature near 46°, and visibility still sitting at less than 1.0 foot.

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.
